During Paul’s career as a photographer he has worked in various fields of photography, from editorial to advertising, documentary to portraiture—and has had his work appear in publications around the world.
In 2011 he became the creative director of The Print Room in Kuala Lumpur, a film photography studio and gallery which has helped to build a community of emerging film photographers in Malaysia. Since it opened, the Print Room has held 15 group and solo exhibitions that have explored different photography genres and printing techniques.
More recently, Paul has moved away from commercial photography to concentrate on his exhibition work. He is based in South Korea and Malaysia. His first book of photography, Five Minutes: The People of Malaysia, was published in 2012.
State of mind is a body of work that is continuously evolving, pulling in and linking to different photographic studies as it grows. Each photograph is a response to a specific moment and is encouraged by what’s happening around me: what I hear, what I see and how I feel, whether it is melancholy, anger, humour, death, life or love. The challenges and experiences that I am facing during this phase of my life is mirrored in every photograph.
