About Paul Politis


I am a self-taught photographer from Montreal, Quebec, and currently living in Ottawa. I have been making photographs since 1988, first in the traditional chemical darkroom, and since 2005, digitally.

I have been showcasing my black and white photography on the web since 1998 (link is to the wayback machine, and my website in 1998!), and through www.paulpolitis.com, since 2001.

My work has appeared or been reviewed in several magazines internationally, including Shutterbug Magazine, Black & White Photography (UK), The American Muse, Black + White Photography Magazine, and PhotoEd Magazine.

My prints are also held in private collections, and in the collection of the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa.
