Artist of the mon­th: Paul Aidan Perry

In today’s society we find ourselves surrounded by creators, visualizers and influencers and with that being said it’s tough to come across those whose work truly speaks to you.

We’d like to start off the new year with a pho­to­gra­pher who has had our atten­ti­on ever sin­ce we first caught a glance of his visual­ly plea­sing work. The Ber­lin based Paul Aidan Per­ry is one who brings poi­se, asser­ti­ve­ness and inspi­ra­ti­on what makes him this January’s artist of the month.

You shoot ever­ything from com­mer­cial, edi­to­ri­al, docu­men­ta­ry, fashion and more, which of tho­se cate­go­ries do you pre­fer the most?
The best thing about my job is that it’s not repe­ti­ti­ve, the crea­ti­ve con­tent I make dif­fers day by day. I like ever­ything, as long as it’s some­thing new and the best is when I haven’t done anything like it before..

What was the first pic­tu­re you remem­ber ever taking?
This may not be my very fist pho­to, howe­ver for the pur­po­se of remem­be­ring it would have to be first of May 2002, I was clim­bing and hiding on a tree in the Ber­lin district of Hohen­schön­hau­sen to pho­to­graph a Neo Nazi demons­tra­ti­on. The pho­to was ana­lo­gue, in color and I took with my old school point and shoot came­ra from Pana­so­nic, which I still own today.

Do you feel that we can get to know you through your pho­to­gra­phy, does your work show your per­so­na­li­ty?
Luck­i­ly, with most of my pro­jects I’m able to bring my own hand­wri­ting in the image, but of cour­se that does­n’t work with every. To get to know me a bit bet­ter, I’d say fol­low my ana­lo­gue dia­ries, I feel tha­t’s the best inter­pre­ta­ti­on of who I real­ly am.

What aspect of your work makes you most exci­ted?
With my work I get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with peop­le that I don’t know and it’s always exci­ting to see how dif­fe­rent peop­le work along­side various pro­jects. The­re’s no doubt that I’m a huge obser­ver, so I’d say tha­t’s the part I enjoy the most.

Ana­lo­gue or Digi­tal?
Both, always.

Whe­re in the world is your ide­al loca­ti­on to shoot?
This pro­bab­ly isn’t a par­ti­cu­lar­ly inte­res­ting ans­wer, howe­ver I tend to like loca­ti­ons whe­re not many peop­le are, loca­ti­ons that can’t be found on Goog­le- Street view. Which can gene­ral­ly be ever­ything that fits to the right time at the right moment. Perhaps that may sound pathe­tic but it’s the truth.

With that being said, who would be your ide­al model to shoot?
I’m not real­ly a Fan-Boy and don’t necessa­ri­ly need a model, I’m a bit weird regar­ding that. My ide­al model could be any­bo­dy, they’d just need to be able to crea­te the per­fect pic­tu­re with me. It’s all about cap­tu­ring that ide­al moment and beco­m­ing a unity.What’s the big­gest chal­len­ge you face as a pho­to­gra­pher today? I get bored very fast, tha­t’s defi­ni­te­ly the big­gest challenge.

As hard as it may be, use 3 words that best descri­be your style of pho­to­gra­phy
Clean. Logic. Ironic.

Your prou­dest moment?
That does­n’t have anything to do with my life as a photographer
