and raised in New York City, Phil Nee first learned photography at
the age of 16 when a neighbor showed him how to develop a roll of
film and make prints in the darkroom. Phil then continued teaching
himself by reading photography books and later became the staff photographer
for his high school newspaper and senior yearbook. During his senior
year, Phil apprenticed at the graphic arts department at ABC-TV in
