Paul Hutchinson graduated with a BA in Communication from Universität der Künste Berlin and a MA in Photography from Central Saint Martins London. In his recent series “Clamps“ and “Nachthimmel“ Paul Hutchinson looks at the particular significance of technology within ordinary and extraordinary situations. While the “Clamps“ series is formally representing a mechanical, everyday tool, it has evolved out of an interest in the functional procedures that lie within the fundaments of this instrument. Clamps equally create bonding and tension. Only by this ambiguous measure are they able to provide value to multiple ordinary applications and carry relevance in daily life. The various “Nachthimmel“ images look closer at the meeting points and increasing fusion of technology, nature and human beings. Addressing much broader observations of solitude and compromise, they act as a suitable counterpart to the microcosm of the “Clamps“.
Paul Hutchinson has exhibited in various locations throughout Europe and South America. His work is held in the public collections of University of the Arts London and Museo de Arte Moderno Santa Cruz. In 2014 he has been shortlisted for the Deutsche Bank Award, the Red Mansion Art Prize and the IBB Preis für Photographie by the University of the Arts Berlin.
He lives and works in Berlin.
