Mark D Phillips has had a front row seat to the digital revolution.

Phillips began his career in the media. After graduating from Randolph Technical College with a degree in photojournalism, he spent 20 years traveling the world using technology to meet daily deadlines.

By 2001, as the World Trade Center was destroyed, digital photography was becoming the norm. September 11, 2001, has been called the day that more photographs were taken than any day in history. His photograph, “Satan in the Smoke,” became a worldwide phenomenon and an icon of digital photography. With no negative, Phillips had to prove that a digital image was real and un- retouched. It became a defining moment in his career.
