Into The Stream features the work of photographer Paul Debois. Each of the collections included has evolved over many years, as Paul has explored a variety of landscapes in the UK and in Southern Spain, walking, cycling or, more recently, rowing, but always with a camera to hand.
‘Thames’ features images of stretches of the River Thames in West London, taken either from the towpath or from the water. ‘Pinhole’ comprises images taken with a basic pinhole camera, then manipulated and digitally refined. The galleries entitled ‘Urban Coast’, ‘Coast’ and ‘Daily Life’ are compilations of images from long walks and cycle rides in Andalucía. In particular, the towns and landscapes of the western province of Cádiz, including the city of Cádiz itself, as well as Conil de la Frontera, Tarifa, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Vejer de la Frontera.
Paul has been a professional editorial photographer since 1979, working on a wide range of subjects – from automotive and portraiture to landscape and botanical. His work has been published in a wide range of magazines, from Car, Top Gear, Country Living and Gardens Illustrated, to Sunday Times and the FT’s How to Spend it. Most recently he has been focussing on work for Gardeners’ World and his own garden features marketed by GAP photos.
His work has been recognised by the Guild of Motoring Writers, which named him as ‘Car Photographer of the Year’ on four occasions and latterly, through the Garden Photographer of the Year competition, where he has won, or has been runner-up, in a number of categories.
He has also run botanical photography courses for the Royal Photographic Society and is currently a judge for the annual RHS Photographic Competition.
Throughout his career Paul has been interested in producing high-quality printed copies of his work, initially via traditional darkroom processes and latterly as archival digital prints.
Most images on this website are available as archival, exhibition quality, individually produced prints.
