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 analogue formats in still and moving image.

In 2018 he was one of 100 winners of The British Journal of Photography’s ‘Portrait of Britain’ 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.



Artist Moving Image | 16mm | 4:3

‘Mirror with a Memory’ is a filmic and photographic record of trades, traditions, cultures, living spaces and acts of protest in England as we experience a transitional period in history.

The film will take the form of a visual diary, poetically navigating the director’s journey throughout the country and their interactions with a wide range of individuals and communities. The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown will also be a part of this ongoing historic narrative.

Shot exclusively on 16mm and 120mm film, the project will culminate in an exhibition and limited photobook.

Work in progress screened at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
