“Photographers always dream of places, their minds and eyes are always
wandering. Flying gives you freedom, it enables you to follow…”
Timing is key. Miles above the earth, travelling at 120 miles per hour, art
can only be produced on intuition, an intuition that is formed and fine-tuned only through years of experience. Years spent filming a pride of lions in Namibia’s Etosha National Game Reserve. Years spent documenting the political transformation that preceded Namibian independence. Years of breathing, seeing, living though the lens…
|1955||Paul was born.|
|1962||Took his first photograph and instantly lost his soul to the mystery of photography.|
|1964||Boarded a private plane for the first time and lost his heart to the freedom of flight.|
|2002||First solo flight.|
|Since then||1 000 hours+ in the air chasing, searching and always moving to spaces of beauty from where he can share his art, his every photograph to him an epiphany, an interpretation of his “god’s eye” view on the world. And it is beautiful.|
