About Paul Jenkin

My interest in photography goes back to the early 1970s when I hit my teens.  At school, in my native UK, I'd seen National Geographic and this really whet my appetite for what later became my passion to see as much of the world as I could and to photograph the places and people that interested me. 

Photographers such as Ansel Adams, Kertesz, Brassai, Paul Strand and Edward Weston were my earliest influences. Through the 40+ years I've been taking photographs, I've discovered a myriad of other greats such as Michael Kenna, Ragnar Axelsson and Pentti Sammallahti.

Most of my photography is in black and white - other than where I feel that the colour actually adds something - as I love tone and texture as much as the subject matter.

These days, I shoot landscapes, documentary, travel and street scenes using 35mm film and digital and also 120 film.  My latest excursion into the unknown is to be pinhole.  I shot pinhole while at school but not much since.
