Paul Choy (South Africa)

I didn’t plan on becoming a photographer, it happened by accident. As a child I dreamed of being an explorer; I just loved going out to see if I could discover something new. Over the years, that drive to explore never left me – wherever I travelled, I was always looking for the new and fascinating, and to learn the stories of the places I visited.

But what use is knowledge unless it is shared? It’s a cliché, but a picture really is worth a thousand words. I started carrying a camera everywhere I went, and using photography to capture stories, immortalising them in a single image. Soon people started calling me a photographer, and I never looked back.

Today I travel the world, creating a compelling picture of the people I meet and the places I visit through the photographs I capture.
