About the Webinar

Paul is a 72-year-old artist/photographer and over the last 53 years, as his work has developed, so his chosen medium, photography has itself undergone cataclysmic changes… so, his work has moved with it as new technologies created opportunities to add depth and impact.

From analog to digital
From monochrome to colour.
From plain air to studio.
From conventional camera to scanner
From paper prints to transparency on lightboxes
From still to moving image

The only constant has been the reliance on purely photographic processes as his chosen medium.

Seaworks is a term he uses to define an ongoing body of work made on or about shorelines. The work, building on themes developed over 50 years, seeks to find the awe-inspiring in that which is easily passed by and, by looking at the micro, asks how we might gain insight into the macro. He tries to evoke fragility, ecology, beauty and transience in the landscape, and to illustrate how human’s hand is scratching away at remaining areas of wilderness.

His aim is to create beautiful compelling images that tell a complex story.
