Paul Hill, who is one of the course leaders of the workshops at The Photographers’ Place, is the subject of a documentary film that is now available on DVD. Paul, along with his late wife, Angela, was the founder of The Photographers’ Place, the first independent study centre in Europe running master classes with internationally significant photographers. He is a world renowned photographer and photographic educator who has lived and worked in the Peak District of Derbyshire in Northern England for forty years. He is probably best known for his seminal landscape work ‘White Peak Dark Peak’ which, through repeated visits, explores the topography of the area around his home.

The film made by photographer and film maker Tony Hopewell, examines Paul’s life and photographic career. He is interviewed in depth about his work, his motivations and practice. Contributions from Photographic Historian, Professor Roger Taylor and Art Historian and Curator, Nicholas Alfrey provide an historic and cultural context to Paul’s work.
