Lives and Works: NY
Paula Parrish is an artist, and her medium is photography – sort of. Paula uses various experimental techniques (and very little retouching) to blur the lines of photo, painting, film, and the human form. In laymen’s terms, her process is BONKERS. We can’t give it all away – but the outcome is fantastical and sometimes gritty. And somehow, always poignant.
We’re asked a lot what she shoots – and the answer is, everything. Paula has been commissioned for beauty, fashion, still life, portrait, and even landscape work, all in her unique and ever-evolving style. Katie and I have always respected Paula’s hard work – and are thrilled at where it’s gotten her. Fine art, commercial work, editorial – it’s all the same to her – she’s CREATING. Many have taken notice – including Visionairs Gallery in Paris. Her work has traveled to and sold at Art Basel, Shanghai, and even right here in NYC at the Chelsea Market. Editorially, she’s shot with Oyster, Twill, No.ise, Planet, Crash, and Bleu (to name a few). And on the commercial front (because we know ad agencies will want to know), she’s shot most recently for several hotels, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitter, Von Dutch, and Target.
