Paul Greens’ love affair with photography began at the age of 4 with an old Box Brownie camera, watching the world through the scratched up plastic viewfinder, imagining magic.
His passion and curiosity for people, costume, and play has stayed with him throughout his life and is reflected in his work today.
After 4 years working in commercial photography in Australia, Paul felt like he needed to find more, to rediscover why he loved being a photographer in the first place. He sold all his possessions and moved to Berlin in 2010 with a back pack and a camera.
In 2010 he started photographing live Burlesque shows, becoming part of the wild community of performers, and coming out on the other end with 2 books, and a couple of scars. It was during this time that he started photographing portraits of performers in the smokey back rooms of Berlin clubs, using a white cloth taped to the wall and a hand held light. This simple and earnest effort sparked a greater love for portraiture, and his work exploded.
Since then Paul has photographed over 600 people all across Europe, and is not looking to stop any time soon.
