    about

    My main photographic goal is and has always been simple; push and explore the limits of the medium by any means possible.  

    I started taking photographs in 1988.  I continue to this day.  

    Life is too short for banal, trite and hackneyed images.  

    I would much rather see a poorly crafted photo that showcases style than a perfect image that shows no creativity.

    You have reached pauldavidanthony.com.  This website has been established as a forum to showcase my personal portfolio.  It represents a sampling of my work over the last 30+ years.  Some of the images here have received awards; many have not.  They are all honest and genuine.  At times dark and disturbing and other times soft and inviting, always a window into my perception of the human condition, subtle psychosis and everyday dysfunction.




    I am grateful that you stopped to take a look.
