Paul Gadd (After Life)


폴 가드는 한국 서울에서 살고 일하는 영국의 사진작가이다. 그의 사진은 그가 영국 엡섬 미술학교 Epsom School of Art에서 미술을 공부하고 있을 때 시작되었는데, 그 때 그는 조각들이 너무 커서 움직일 수 없었기 때문에 사진을 찍어야만 했다. 흥미를 느낀 폴은 초점을 바꾸기로 결심하고 스완지 메트로폴리탄 대학교 Arts at Swansea Metropolitan University에서 사진학 학사 학위를 취득했다. 1997년 졸업할 때 폴은 인디펜던트 신문과 의류쇼 라이브가 공동으로 주관하는 올해의 젊은 캣워크 사진작가 대회 Young Catwalk Photographer of the Year competition에 참가하여 2,500명의 참가자들 중 2위를 차지했다. 그 후 그는 전설적인 캣워크 사진작가 크리스 무어Chris Moore로부터 일자리를 제안받았고 이후 4년 동안 패션쇼를 촬영하며 그와 함께 일했다. 다른 분야 탐구에 열심인 폴은 프리랜서로 전향해 아시아로 건너가 패션과 초상화 사진에 집중하고 솔로와 공동 전시회에 참여하기 시작했다. 몇 년 동안 패션 잡지와 광고 촬영을 하였다. 그 후 그는 다시 필름사진에 관심을 돌렸고, 그 후 그의 광고 경력은 주로 잡지 다큐멘터리 촬영에 집중되었다. 2011년 폴은 The Print Room이라고 불리는 말레이시아 쿠알라룸푸르에서 사진 스튜디오와 갤러리를 공동으로 운영하였다. 이곳에서 그는 전통적인 필름 사진 및 암실 인쇄 방법을 가르치고, The Print Room이 만든 전문 사진가와 신흥 사진작가들의 소규모 커뮤니티를 위한 전시도 큐레이션 하기도 했다. The Print Room 말레이시아는 2020년 2월에 문을 닫고 2021년 초 한국 서울로 옮겨오게 되었으며 2021년 말 공식적으로 일반에 공개된다. 컬러든 흑백이든 그의 작품은 어둠에서 유머러스까지 다양하지만, 그의 경험이나 세계 문제에 대한 관점이든 간에 항상 개인적인 차원을 포함하고 있다. 폴의 사진은 네거티브를 긁거나 다듬어 핸드프린팅을 할 때 다른 매체를 첨가하고, 마지막 단계에서 탈색, 페인트칠, 그리고 인코스티크 encaustic 사용으로 조작된다. 그의 작품은 판본이지만 사진 한 장 한 장이 원본이다.


Paul Gadd is a British photographer living and working from Seoul, South Korea. His photography began whilst he was studying fine art at 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 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 co-operated a photo studio and gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, called The Print Room. He taught traditional film photography and darkroom printing and curated exhibitions for a small community of professional and emerging photographers created by The Print Room. The Print Room Malaysia finally closed it's doors February 2020 and moved to Seoul, South Korea early 2021, and officially opens to the public towards the end of 2021. 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. Paul’s photographs are manipulated by scratching or toning the negatives, adding different mediums during handprinting, then bleaching, painting and the use of encaustic on the final stage. Though his works are in editions, each photograph is an original.
