Paul Lange’s photographs have been featured in distinguished publications worldwide including Vogue, and the New York Times, amongst others. In his past life as a prominent NYC based fashion photographer for 25 years, he traveled the globe on editorial assignments with subjects as diverse as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Cindy Crawford, Ralph Lauren and Halle Berry.
Eight years ago, he relocated to New York’s Hudson Valley and started a new life as a Fine Art photographer, immediately engaging with his local surroundings on a number of large-scale photography projects about Place. The project, titled, "Fifty Acres" is an ongoing seven year exploration of one property close to home, out of which four series have grown: Big Blooms, Fowl Portraits, Paradisus, and Disturbed Paradise.
Other photographic projects involve outreach in various forms: one is a pro-bono portrait series for the New York chapter of the Heart Gallery, a volunteer organization that creates new connections for foster children in need of adoptive homes. Another project about place, still in the early stages of development, is documenting the physical, historical and geographical landmarks on one ranch in central Wyoming and the attempts of one man to promote ecologically based wind farming there.
All of his photographs are created entirely in-camera at the time of exposure. There is no manipulation in Photoshop.
A native New Yorker, Paul lives in Chatham, New York with his wife and creative partner, Jennifer. He has been exhibiting his work since 2007, and his photographs are in private collections worldwide. His work was recently included in the Beauty Culture exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography in LA. As a guest speaker in the Iris Nights Lecture Series at the Annenberg last July, he spoke to a sold out crowd for his lecture titled “Good Light Stories.”
