The story of the two Paul’s.

The Story of the two Paul’s.

“A few weeks ago, my younger brother and I were visiting our mother at her nursing home. During the conversation, I glanced up and saw this image of my brother (on the right) across the room. I remembered taking it and how much it reminded me at the time (as well as now) of a portrait I took of our father over 25 years ago (on the left). When I juxtapose them now, I of course see the family resemblance between them, but I also see myself in the two portraits; I see my signature photographic style. Doing impromptu portraits with available light and not fussing around with a ton of gear has become a trademark of mine and one of my favorite ways to shoot.
