ONLINE WITH EIKONA: PLAYBOY AND ESQUIRE-PUBLISHED PHOTOGRAPHER PHIL BRIDEAUX DISCUSSES HIS MASTERPIECES OF WOMEN, IN AND OUT OF TORONTO
And his project - Eikona - took centre stage, inside his head and on to laminated paper, thanks to a summer in Ottawa and a BFA in Photography at Ryerson University. Eikona - a name inspired by his school knowledge in ancient Koine Greek language and early Christianity - became his long-term mission to producing a collage of "beautiful women." "While living in Ottawa for a summer," Phil explains, "I photographed a friend as a favour to her. Most guys don't mind photographing beautiful women, so I was pretty much hooked then."
