- Would you introduce yourself in a few words?
My name is Paul Emman, I was born September 18, 1987 in Bogota, Colombia. When I was younger, I took some photography courses at Quinot high school that made me discover and like this work.
Magnum or Seven, the big photojournalism agencies inspired me, I did my first reportage when I was 18 in Romania. Today, I have more than a dozen reportages from all over the world.
- Where does this interest for photography come from?
From the beginning I wanted to be a photo-reporter, guided by the desire to show and leave an indelible mark of human history.
- What is your work’s operative word in your mind?
All photo-reporters and I are the witnesses of a time, nothing more.
- What’s your favorite picture currently for sale and why?
The last one I took in Paris (Editor’s note: link to the photo of the presentation of the article). I must admit I’m very attracted to the visual side of images at the moment. It’s the first independent picture of all my subjects. It has allowed me to discover another aspect of photography that I’d like to go deeper into in the coming years.
- What are your future projects?
As far as future projects go, I’d like to go on a long trip to most of the ex-USSR’s countries.
