About the photographer, Paul CUPIDO (b. 1972, the Netherlands)

Dutch photographer Paul CUPIDO graduated 2017 cum laude from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam with the first installment of his ongoing multimedia project Searching for Mu. He was awarded an artist’s residency at the Belfast Photo Festival 2017 and the Hariban Jurors’ Choice Award in Japan. Paul CUPIDO's main inspiration is life and its impermanence, the process of genesis, metamorphosis and inevitable disappearance, as well as the symbolic correspondences between earth and body. The act of photographing for him is not just performed to document something that exists. Instead of focusing on a final result, the photographer is more concentrated on the process that almost like a meditation affects his body and mind and connects him to an existential sense of life.
