Paul M. Murray
A Rhode Island native and extensive traveler, Paul's approach to photography and life is to remain open, trust his instincts, and discard labels that are divisive. He uses technology to increase his creative options and productivity but not to replace his vision and responsibility. Many of his artistic efforts are focused on travel, event, and fine art photography. Often, he ventures well beyond the pathways of others in his journeys.
Color, light, and gesture are important elements in his work. His use of these varies intrinsically across landscapes, nature, people, and culture. His choices of timing, perspective, and composition are intended to draw the viewer into the setting, moment, and tempo of what he sees.
Paul exhibits extensively in the United States as well as Cuba, Greece, and Hungary. He is a juried artist member of the Copley Society of Art, the Providence Art Club, the Salmagundi Club of New York, Mystic Museum of Art, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, and several community art galleries in New England.
A firm believer in giving back to the community, he has donated his skills to community projects in several states.
