Artist Bio
Paul Solberg studied Anthropology at the University of Cape Town and traveled extensively to Namibia, Botswana and South Africa before moving to New York. He began his photographic career with his first book, Bloom (2005), which was followed by Puppies Behind Bars (2006) and Tyrants + Lederhosen (2011) and Tattoos, Hornets & Fire (2012). First known for his still-life portraits, Solberg applies the same depth to his human subjects, such as portraits of Ai Weiwei (2008) and his haunting portraits of the Armed Forces (2010), which resides in the Elton John Photography Collection, among others. His work has been included in top publications and exhibited internationally.
