Phil Grout started to learn his craft as a photojournalist in 1966 covering naval operations in Vietnam.  But he quickly learned it wasn't the images of war he was hunting, but more the face of humanity as he roamed the back alleys of Saigon, Hong Kong,Sasebo, Japan and the Philippines.  With pictures and words he became a gatherer of the threads which bind us together as human beings.

His work has taken him throughout the Americas, Asia, India and Africa for newspapers, magazines wire services, book publishers and international relief organizations.  He is the author of three critically acclaimed books of photography and prose.  His work has been awarded by the Associated Press, Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association as well as various arts organizations.  It has also been featured in art galleries throughout the United States.
