PAUL DALY

With a changing British landscape at the forefront of Paul’s highly personal and experiential work, he aims to focus on and champion marginalised communities, cultural trades and traditions, the working class, and the effects of austerity through the use of redundant analogue formats.

In 2018 he was one of 100 winners of The British Journal of Photography’s ‘Portrait of Brtiain’ prize and was exhibited nationwide.

Having recently finished a HOME Manchester commissioned film, Paul is currently working towards finishing his personal project ‘Mirror with a Memory’ as well as seeking new commissions and collaborations.
