Portraits by Paul Burch

If you have not yet had the pleasure to admire the striking black and white portraits on display please come and do so. They are by your fellow colleague Paul Burch.

Paul explores how the people that surround us everyday shape who we are and how, even though we may have little or no interaction with them, their presence is integral to our existence:

'Where we live plays a big part in defining who we are. It's not just about the architecture of the place, but the people who live around us...they all help to affirm our shared sense of existence and identity.'

The portraits are of people who live in Paul's village. This beardy bloke's (Bazil) face tells a story or two! I'm sure Paul would be delighted to talk to you if you want to know more.

Some of the images will be on show at Cannes this year. What an achievement!
