Through careful placement of line, colour and shape to create compelling compositions, or simply by highlighting unexpectedly interesting views of the apparently mundane, Paul Clifford’s photographs give us new ways of looking at the world around us.
'I want to show the simple and sometimes sublime pleasures that can be had by taking a slower and more considered look at everyday scenery and situations. I hope to create something new that can feel both interesting and beautiful, mysterious and familiar.'
Paul has been taking photographs for as long as he can remember. He began cataloguing his images in 1993 - building a collection that runs into the thousands. The pictures explore a wide range of locations, subjects, ideas and forms, always with a keen sense of composition and feel for colour.
Paul has exhibited his fine art photography at a number of shows. As part of his commercial business at paulcliffordimages.com he has created thousands of images and Virtual Tours for the property market in the UK, shot artworks for West End galleries, and photographed for Thomas Cook around the world.
