It doesn’t take much for a Salt Lake City photographer to realize the LDS temple photography scene has already been covered.
Phillip Monson is one of these local photographers and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Like many members of the religion, and even many who are not members, he finds a special beauty in Mormon temples.
But Monson knew that simply blending his love of photography and his love of temples wasn’t a new idea. He wanted something fresh and different.
"A lot of people take photos of the temples, and I really wanted to make something different and stand out," Monson said. "So I had this idea that it would be cool to do a project where I take photos of all the temples in Utah in all four seasons and then put it together.
