Paola + Murray Honored by PDN 30
The PDN 30 2018 has been announced and we’re thrilled that Paola + Murray are among the impressive list chosen for the honor this year.
Their incredible collection of clients and collaborators affords them the ability to travel all over the world, capturing their travels and experiences in unique ways, delivering us the goods. We get to travel along with them, experiencing the sights and sounds that we may otherwise never be able to. More than images on a page, Paola + Murray brings the moments to life as if they’re happening right in front of us.
PDN has awarded the PDN 30 for almost 30 years now, examining the careers of hundreds of emerging photographers each year and identifying their top 30. The publication looks for photographers with “a variety of styles and genres [who] have demonstrated a distinctive vision, creativity, and versatility” and have been working professionally for five years or less. This year they started with a list of almost 300 photographers nominated by photo editors, art directors, curators, educators and fellow photographers, while others were incorporated into consideration at the behest of the publication. Within these rigorous parameters, and considered alongside other incredible talents, Paola + Murray were named to the esteemed list.
PDN chose a selection of their favorite images from Paola + Murray’s recent work and it represents a veritable global jaunt. Images from the Dolomites, Oaxaca, and even Oman (taken with Food & Wine, New York Times Magazine, and Conde Nast Traveler) give the patented Paola + Murray point of view on locations most tourists don’t think to visit. No matter where they go, Paola + Murray eat well, live well, and introduce us to the flavors and people that make up a place. Because at the end of the day, that's how we experience the world.
