Paul Aiden Perry
The 2 minutes-interview
Paul Aidan Perry isn’t Paul Aidan Perry’s real name – it’s somehow different and only partially, or was it the other way round? Anyway, Paul is what’s hot right now in photography. We would even go as far as stating that he is one of our absolutely favourite photographers. Why? He works with contemporary looks without hiding behind them. He delivers on point and then some. His images are about content, about discovery – he even manages to smuggle a small story into an editorial series. We got to know him in action, so to speak. He visited us in the studio and at home for BLONDE Magazine, camera in tow. If you’re interested in seeing how we live, you can see the whole story here. We had so much fun with him that we invited him and his girlfriend/muse Anna to stay for dinner. We can justifiably state that Paul is the vegetarian with the kinkiest preferences on this entire planet. Or what is your take on the Fry-Kebab – a kebab filled with nothing but french fries and garlic sauce? You just gotta love that. Oh, and in just one week we’ll be getting on a boat with him to shoot a campaign for a fabulous new client. But that’s all we’ll tell for now…
