Paul Wainwright



(b. 1949; lives Atkinson, NH)

Paul Wainwright built his first darkroom when he was 12, and for more than four decades photography was his expressive outlet. He was also fascinated by physics, and has a PhD from Yale. A lengthy high-tech career at Bell Laboratories only strengthened his love for traditional photography, and since 2001 he has made it his full-time occupation. Wainwright’s work is held in private and public collections and shown through the region. His 2009 book, A Space for Faith: The Colonial Meetinghouses of New England, is the winner of numerous publishing awards.

Wainwright was a past PRC Member Spotlight and is known for his fine printing. Wainwright’s large-format work evokes a sense of timelessness and tranquility, and has been described as reminiscent of some of the great masters of the 20th century.
