Collection: Paul Quant

Paul began his career in the Statens Materialverk's laboratory (FMV) in 1977 and learned directly from old school photographers who handled glass plates, WWII aerial films, large scale enlargers and everything else related to the darkroom. Five years later, he began shooting for the police technical department - crime scenes and studio photography as well as laboratory work - a job that required a lot of creativity to develop plausible leads.

Paul was then recruited in 1986 as a commercial photographer and lab director for Studio FJK, a studio founder edited by three journalists from Dagens Nyheter.

Since 1992 he has focused entirely on commercial, portrait and fine art photography, with photo, video and editing studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and Konstfack, while developing his work with Sinar large format Polaroid. Searching for the right image, mood and composition shows his genuine love and respect for the craft itself. Mistakes and lessons learned from these elaborate processes are often inspirational in his diverse creative work.
