Overview


London mentors Kobi Israel and Rupert Truman taught Mark Paulda the rules of photography and how to break them.

From "straight photography" to more innovative work, the camera is never far from his side. In Celebrating El Paso, Paulda turns to documenting the unique bi-cultural heritage that is El Paso.

His time-lapsed evocations of traffic at twilight or his explorations of the majestic mountains of the area celebrate the city that occupies a unique vantage point—on the border of two countries, three states, a military installation, and an Indian reservation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 

 

"This publication, beautifully shot and compiled by El Paso photographer Mark Paulda, offers any reader—or viewer—a poignant, visual take on the city’s unforgettable land and cityscapes."—El Paso Mayor John F. Cook

Mark Paulda's abiding romance with his home city of El Paso is apparent in nearly every photograph in this lush coffee-table pictorial. Constantly changing scale and strategy, he reveals the allure of this many-sided city; ambitious aerial shots rub shoulders with a sun-drenched close-up of an outdoor flower market or a complex mirror image of postmodern buildings. These artful, affectionate views are, we are told, the first ever photographic celebration of El Paso. It was worth the wait.
