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
