Self-taught in photography, Paulo Paz graduated in informatics management. His first steps in photography were by following his father in their personal home laboratory for film revelations and management. Later on, he developed photojournalism stories for the Costa do Sol journal between 1977 and 1982.
Although "author photography" is a daily common expression, Paulo currently focuses his work on digital photography by sometimes trading the black & white film and dark room sessions for color and digital editing.
In his work, Paulo leans towards a creative result rather than a documental one, as he often seeks for the timeless perspectives. The human activity and the organization of space are clearly present in his work, along with abstraction and representation, or maybe the combination of both.
