Paul Dempsey – Photographer
A computer programmer and Webmaster by trade, describes himself as a fine art photographer and a “digital manipulator.” His keen vision captures ordinary details from daily life and transforms them into images of beauty and wit, filled with contrasting shapes and effects.
Paul’s current series of abstract work focuses on macro images of nature combined with additional exposures of ice, snow, sand, and sky. These futuristic scenes, inspired by the writings of Kurt Vonnegut, offer a wry commentary on global warming and climate change. Paul’s work is printed on a variety of substrates including metal, paper, and canvas. His photography has been displayed in galleries such as Ashawagh Hall, Southampton Cultural Center, Water Mill Museum, East End Arts, Southold Historical Museum, Remsenburg Academy, Quogue Library, and Guild Hall.
He also exhibits at Spectrum Miami as part of Art Basel, Miami.
Paul has donated his time and images for fundraising for nature conservancy and animal rescue. He also currently serves as Vice President and Webmaster for the Southampton Artists Association.
