Paul’s series Navigate has won 1st place at The International Photography Awards in the Professional Analog / Film, Landscape category.
Documenting Navigation markers around the coastline of Britain, Navigate is a series of pared down photographs taken over a period of 3 years. These structures, from land appear inconsequential & near invisible have a very important purpose. Their vastly varied appearances lend them distinct personalities as they become figurative symbols, always different, always the same, anchored in the seemingly endless sea. Recalling Britain’s identity as an island nation and coincidentally beginning in 2016 when the country voted to leave the European Union, Navigate looks at Britain from the edges out.
