Approach every encounter with people openly and without expectations. My photography aims to capture moments and experiences that reveal our shared humanity and the deep need for connection. I seek to transcend cultural and linguistic barriers, creating images that evoke empathy, understanding, and a sense of shared experience. Whether photographing people on the streets or in formal settings, my goal is to evoke the mystery and beauty of our world.
The little boy in the photo below is me, dressed up for a wedding in 1962 at the age of 5. My grandfather, also named Paul, fascinated me with stories of distant lands and their people. Despite never having visited these places himself, our time spent poring over maps and examining details ignited a desire within me to explore and connect with diverse individuals.
Though my grandfather is no longer with us, I carry his memory and my passion for photography. With an unwavering fascination for maps, I use my camera to meet people and share their stories. Through my work, I strive to capture the essence of the human experience, fostering connections and reminding us of the world's mystery and beauty.
