Paz Dean



Paz is a photographer that mixes in different worlds documenting life on the edge.

Some times humorous other times dark. With a twisted sense of reality. His work can be viewed as street anthropology. Allowing your subject to speak unencumbered by the photographers will. Negotiated against the need to express a narrative. In capturing the everyday in documentary form, in a age when taking Warholian dictums that everybody is looking for fifteen minutes of fame. Applying to it Mores law with the ready proliferation of cameras, the craft of photography in its democracy and everyday ubiquity must answer the question of its existential relevance.

Something that is not holy resolved in his work, but going back to the start, becomes the personality of his photos that speaks volumes.

Each sitter a being in time representative of wider narratives preserved like butterfly’s in mid flight.
