Paul Alsop

This months featured artist is Paul Alsop

A Doctor by profession – but fine art photographer at heart.

 

 

Paul Alsop has been named the 2017 Australasian Emerging Photographer of the year – Winning the portrait section and then going on to take out the over all winner category as well.His work has a raw and beautiful quality rarely seen in todays digital world.  He uses a technique called wet plate collodian process. The 4 x 5 tintype photo produces an image with a very shallow depth of field but what is in focus is incredibly sharp and has what can only be described as an ‘honesty’ about it that takes your breath away.

It has been my absolute pleasure to print some of Paul’s images for the Auckland Festival of Photography this year.
