This paper sketches a program towards giving a physically realist model of the photon in terms of properties of the electromagnetic field. It is both shown how to rework traditional wave and particle concepts so as to have a unified concept and how parallel electromagnetic fields can be associated with each charged particle. An account of both light propagation and of interactions with matter is sketched. A suggestion is made as to how the account may be able to explain EPR correlations in the case of polarization entanglement. A possible empirical test is also discussed.
