Paul thrilled with latest honour

AWARD-winning photographer Paul Coghlin is celebrating after having one of his shots selected for the Royal Academy summer exhibition.

Fellow exhibitors at the prestigious London show include high-profile British artists such as Tracey Emin.

Paul’s toned photographic print Pink Tulip, Study IV will be seen by an estimated 200,000 visitors to the exhibition, which has been held annually since 1768.

More than 12,000 works in a wide variety of media and styles were submitted this year but only 1,200 were selected.

Paul, from Great Waldingfield, said: “I was thrilled to hear that my work had been chosen and that my print will be displayed at such a renowned institution alongside so many world-class artists.”

Last year, his first year of entering photographic competitions, he won a string of awards.

He was named photographer of the year by both the British Institute of Professional Photography and Black and White Photography Magazine.
