About the Work

When New York Times best-selling author, Maxine Paetro, first asked Philip Balshi to photograph her collection of koi ponds, she never expected he would fall in love with the painterly beauty of koi. But Phil saw the transcendent color of koi as the perfect palette from which he could create photographic art that often resembles beautiful watercolor or oil paintings.  His use of light, color, form, and movement are seen in each of his photographic renderings and his limited edition giclee prints.
