Paul Hill

The RPS Journal published an article in May about the photographic project he did with Maria Falconer, whilst they were working with humanitarian groups helping refugees in Greece.

Paul recently had a 14 page illustrated interview in Chinese Photography magazine and he was also featured extensively in another Chinese publication, Photography in the British Classroom, a major book on photographic education in the UK.

This Spring he wrote an illustrated piece 'Lay of the Land' for Digital Camera. A comprehensive interview with Paul was also featured in the August edition of Digital Camera magazine accompanied by many images that trace his 50 years as a photographer. The interviewer Geoff Harris wrote:
'An eminent photographer, teacher and workshop pioneer, Paul Hill witnessed many of the major changes that transformed British photography in the 20th century, and works to help students develop their own vision: "to say something rather than just show something," he says.'
