Jeff Phillips at Phoenix Military Academy, 2020

Jeff Phillips is the CPS Lives photographer changing the notion of what military school is, and redefining it into what it can be. Through his time at Phoenix, Phillips has tackled the issues around what it means to be a student of a CPS military school – and he continues to do so as he goes into the second semester of his 2nd year in the program.
