Paul Berriff: a life in pictures 9 September - 7 October 2017

Paul Berriff’s exhibition at Joe Cornish Galleries will document his long and incredible career and will feature Paul’s outstanding photography from a life spent behind a camera.


Paul is one of Britain’s most accomplished television documentary film makers. A pioneer in his field, Paul has been awarded the OBE and two BAFTAs, along with a host of other top TV awards. His latest being the GTC’s Television Cameraman’s Award for 2017.

Starting his career in the early ‘60s as a 16 year old press photographer, Paul quickly moved on to making films, documentaries and ground-breaking TV series with some of the most well-known names in the industry and beyond.

A short-list of Paul’s subjects and collaborators include Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, HRH Prince Charles, Randolph Fiennes, Jane Seymour and Roger Moore, the space shuttle at Cape Canaveral, the post-war Kuwaiti oil fields with Werner Herzog, and the New York Fire Department on 09/11. The list goes on…

Paul’s photographs have been on exhibition in New York, San Francisco, Prague & Dubai with a permanent display at The Beatles Story in Liverpool. Despite this illustrious roll-call, Paul specialises in capturing intimate portraits of his subjects and of their interaction with others. Paul is now based back in Yorkshire, photographing the landscape and people around him.

Paul will be giving a talk about his long life in film at the galleries to launch his exhibition. The talk will include film and video from Paul’s career.
