Phil Taylor is many things: a husband, a father, an entrepreneur and most recently a philanthropist. At his core though, Phil Taylor is an artist. As the founder of The American Fallen Soldiers Project he works tirelessly for an average of 85 hours creating portraits of fallen soldiers that have given their lives protecting our freedom around the world. Phil along with his wife and co-founder Lisa then personally present the completed portraits to the soldiers’ families.
It was my pleasure to document the long awaited grand opening of their gallery in Carrollton which they commemorated with the presentation of three portraits to the families of the fallen soldiers.
Presently, the American Fallen Soldiers Project has a waiting list of well over 100 portrait requests. You can learn more about Phil & Lisa’s efforts by visiting their website at http://www.americanfallensoldiers.com/.
