Paul Mahder

"Through my work I'm discovering that our bodies are connected to each other and to the natural world in a very intimate and sensual way. As I photograph people and natural textures, I feel compelled into relationship. It's as if each of us has a hidden glorified body and a yet untold story begging to be read."

The human body with its mixed connotations of sensuality and sacredness, is explored to its fullest potential within Paul Mahder's photography. Capturing the spontaneous emotions revealed by the body in motion, Mahder reveals its dynamic tensions - beauty and enigma, assuredness and vulnerability, freedom and entanglement, innocence and exposure.

None of the photographs are enhanced by computers or paint. Instead, Mahder superimposes multiple negatives to achieve the depth of color and the compositional complexity of his imagery.
