Paul Duerinckx is a documentary photographer based in Swansea. His practice is based primarily on documenting people and place with a specific interest in street photography and the evolving roles of documentary photography and photojournalism as they respond to the ever-shifting mediums and institutions in which they manifest. Duerinckx has worked for various editorial clients including The Daily Telegraph, Express Saturday magazine, The Times and Nursing Times magazine. He has worked as a stills and portrait photographer for Meridian Television and the television production company, Antelope South.
From 2004-5 he was the project manager and a photographer for The Final Season, a documentation of Swansea City AFC’s final season at their long-established home ground, The Vetch Field. This resulted in the book, The Final Season and an exhibition at Swansea’s Glynn Vivian Gallery in 2005. His work also featured in the group publication and exhibition Unreliable Truths (Glynn Vivian, 2008). More recently, his portraits and studio images of illustrators were published in the book, Making Great Illustration (A&C Black 2011). Portraits from this series were exhibited at the Peninsular Gallery in Plymouth (2012). A current commission, the Book project, a response to the Glynn Vivian gallery during its current closure and refurbishment, is due for publication in 2014. He is also a senior lecturer and Programme Director for the BA (Hons) Photojournalism degree at Swansea Metropolitan University.
