We see A LOT of photography portfolios here at It’s Nice That and while most display a good deal of technical skill, there’s often a lack of personality on show. Step forward then 22-year-old Cape Town creative Paul Ward, who’s portfolio not only shows off his deft composition and use of colour but also a playful, cheeky sensibility that sideswipes at an art-form that too often takes itself far too seriously. “Who is Paul Ward?” asks his website URL – he’s a one-to-watch is the inescapable answer.
