A new body of work has been released by award-winning fine-art photographer Paul Coghlin, from Great Waldingfield.

The floral series is made up of 21 images of Suffolk flowers, chosen for their exquisite detail, delicate colour and natural symmetry.

Paul enjoys exploring texture throughout much of his work and his distinctive and rare photographic style and attention to detail are again applied to this new series.

Paul said: “When I see an attractive flower, I notice its perfume, fine texture and the intricacy of its structure.

“It’s a fleeting first impression, which is a challenge to capture in a photograph, and I strive to convey this emotion in my work”.

The colour series is a departure from Paul’s previous black and white – and perhaps more sombre – floral series.

The new light and airy images are full of subtle colour and tones, giving them a graceful, ethereal quality.

A Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography, Paul has won many awards, including BIPP Photographer of the Year in 2010 and 2013.

He has also won Black and White Photography Magazine Photographer of the Year, as well as awards from New York’s International Photography Awards and the Federation of European Photographers.

He has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts’ summer exhibition in London and with the Royal Horticultural Society.

Paul is represented by Sea Pictures Gallery in Clare.
