About The Artwork

Hand print on warm tone semi matt fibre. Every print is manipulated by hand, therefor each print will differ from the other. The series Going Bananas was shot at the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic when a majority of Asian countries were in Lockdown. I was on my way to exhibit at The Other Art fair in London 2020 when the event was forced to postpone due to the coronavirus. At that time of lockdown I was printing in Malaysia on my new work, my flight to London was cancelled, and South Korea closed its borders. The place I was staying in Malaysia had a big tropical garden with loads of Banana trees, luckily enough they began to flower which gave me the the idea of the aptly named project "Going Bananas". By the time I was able to get a repatriation flight back to Seoul I had managed to photograph multiple rolls of film of various stages of decomposition of the flowers until there was nothing left but the dried shells of the flowers. Each hand print is split toned using, bleach, selenium and sepia and comes in two sizes, 24.5cm x 24.5cm edition of 15 And a larger size (yet to be printed) Edition of 5.

Paul Gadd is a British photographer living and working from Seoul, South Korea. His photography began whilst he was studying fine art at the 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 more 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 jointly run a photography studio and gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called The Print Room. Here he would teach the traditional methods of film photography and darkroom printing, also curating exhibitions for professional and the small community of emerging photographers that The Print Room has created. 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 hand-printing, then bleaching, toning and encaustic on the final stage. Though his works are in editions, each photograph is an original.
