SYDNY / Paul Sleeman
29 April - 17 May 2010
SYDNY is a collection of photographs featuring iconic architecture of Sydney and New York.
We will also be holding the Australian book launch of Paul Anthony Sleeman: Decade 2001 - 2010 in which Sleeman retraces in word and image the course of his photographs and memories during this decade.
Paul Anthony Sleeman is a Sydney based photographic artist with an international following, particularly in the USA. His architectural images are included in the collection of President Bill Clinton and the late Joern Utzon. The American Club has nine prints from his Gotham series on permanent display in the Manhattan Bar.
Paul commenced his career as a photo-journalist in the 60’s with rock magazines, capturing visiting groups including the Rolling Stones.
By the 80’s, he was based in SE Asia, primarily Hong Kong and Jakarta, focusing on the socio-political climate of China and Indonesia, before returning to Sydney to work as a scriptwriter.
In the 2008 Sony World Photography Awards, the industry equivalent of the Academy Awards, Paul was one of the 10 finalists selected from over 44,000 professional submissions.
Paul is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) and the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP).
