About The Artwork

Photography: Black & White, Gelatin on Paper. Toned hand print on warm tone semi matt fibre. Every print is manipulated by hand, therefor each print will differ from the other. From the series State of mind, "Black Bauhinia" was inspired by the 2019/20 Hong Kong demonstrations. State of mind is a body of work that is continuously evolving, pulling in and linking to different photographic studies as it grows. Each photograph is a response to a specific moment and is encouraged by what’s happening around me: what I hear, what I see and how I feel, whether it is melancholy, anger, humour, death, life or love. The challenges and experiences that I am facing during this phase of my life is mirrored in every photograph. This photograph is number 1 from an edition of 15. As each photograph is manipulated and toned separately after each print is made, not one print is the same as the other. This making each print an original. When I bleach my work I use my fingers to wipe or smear, a brush to paint or splash or even throw on the chemical onto the final print. And when I paint my photographs I will not look at the previous completed version, I paint how I feel at the time.

Paul Gadd is a British photographer living and working from Seoul, South Korea. His photography began whilst he was studying fine art at the Epsom School of Art in the UK, when he had to photograph some of his sculptures because they were too big to move. Intrigued, Paul decided to switch his focus and acquired a BA in Photography in the Arts at Swansea Metropolitan University. When he graduated in 1997, Paul entered the Young Catwalk Photographer of the Year competition organised jointly by The Independent newspaper and Clothes Show Live and placed second out of 2,500 entrants. He was then offered a job by the legendary catwalk photographer Chris Moore and worked with him shooting fashion shows for the next four years. Keen to explore other fields, Paul turned freelance and moved to Asia, where he began concentrating on fashion and portrait photography and participating in solo and joint exhibitions. After a few years of working with fashion magazines and shooting more commercial work, he turned his interest back to film photography. Since then his commercial career has focused mainly on documentary shoots for magazines. In 2011 Paul jointly run a photography studio and gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called The Print Room. Here he would teach the traditional methods of film photography and darkroom printing, also curating exhibitions for professional and the small community of emerging photographers that The Print Room has created. His work—whether in colour or in black and white—can range from the dark to the humorous, but it always includes a personal dimension, whether it’s his experiences or perspective on world issues. In 2020 during the covid pandemic The Print Room in Malaysia closed its doors. Paul then moved to Seoul South Korea where he spent two years renovating a new space to work, teach and exhibit. In 2023, The Print Room (South Korea) opened it's doors. Paul's photographs are manipulated by scratching or toning the negatives, adding different mediums during hand-printing, then bleaching, toning and encaustic on the final stage. Though his works are in editions, each photograph is an original.
