NY based photographer Paula Parrish evokes a new dimension in her body of work — between her experimental techniques of printed, mounted then reshot or projected imagery and subject matter, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality in a complex system of layers and textures…video-art meets Cindy Sherman aesthetic!
Paula first pursued a career in documentary filmmaking. She directed and produced four films which were shot in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Tokyo and won awards at several film festivals including the NY Film and Video Festival, Slamdance, The Chicago Film Festival, The Dallas Video Festival, and Hollywood Film Festival Short Division. On Paula’s 4th film project she was documenting women working in the sex industry in Tokyo and decided to start photographing her subjects. Captivated by the powerful static nature and emotion of the still image, Paula finished the film and went back to the US to change her life for photography. Never letting go of her love for video, she has found a way to incorporate her filmmaking with still photography by working with video cameras, and still cameras combined.
Paula began her professional career in commercial photography in 2004. While thriving in the commercial and fashion worlds, the work easily transcends in the fine art realm. Paula continuously passionately exhibits her personal work in NY, Miami and Paris with amazing response.

Her work mainly derives from the Northern solicitude, the stillness and the unfulfilled aspiration for something inexplicable. Inspired by the past, ancient stories, images and especially old paintings, portraits, mixed with the inspiration of the present, relations, films, music and musicvideos, her dreamy and old-fashioned poetic images more often resembles paintings rather than photographs. Though the essence of the images are predetermined and carefully planned before shooting, the main part of the images’ magic and special touch are made in the after effects of the retouch.
