Paul Russell

I am a photographer based in Weymouth, England, currently shooting in Bath, Brighton, London (and Weymouth).

I’m interested in examining how human behaviour is affected by our environment. Having studied animal behaviour and evolution at university, I think of my photography as a pictorial natural history and ecology of humans. We enjoy traditional nature documentaries about other species, and birdwatchers will often spend hours waiting for a small nondescript brown bird to leave its nest, for example, but we rarely stop to examine our own everyday behaviour in such detail. Familiarity can make us forget that human behaviour is often quite peculiar…
