Yes, it's true that I am an artist, but I am also a scientist. A strange breed... But above all, I am a citizen of the world.
As an adventurer animated by a profound desire to explore beyond the boundaries of the finite, Paul listens to the silence of the landscape. The scenery that surrounds him then becomes abstract, inevitably leading to some form of meditation. Only then does he pick up his camera to seize the essence of what he sees and feels.
Like an artist of the Romantic era, he captures the beauty of the natural world in his painting-like photographs. Each image becomes a universe on its own, expressing a daily reflection, a soul search of a restless traveller.
The message is one of purity, serenity and, above all, humility for the natural beauty that surrounds us.
But what is most important to Paul is for his photographs to touch people’s souls in a way that encourages them to awaken to the natural beauty around them and to inspire more conscious recognition of and respect for our planet.
