Paul Crespel Street Photography

Welcome to the official website of Paul Crespel, an accredited news photographer and photoreporter, who now dedicates his time to documentary, capturing images of people going about their daily lives, to archive for the benefit of future generations.

Today's photographs are tomorrow's history.

Paul Crespel's street images cover Milan, Verona, Vicenza, Venice, Parma, Ferrara, Lucca, Florence, Cembra and other towns and cities in Italy.  He lives two weeks of every month in Veneto, and the other two exploring Tuscany.

Paul Crespel is an Irish citizen.  He moved to Italy in 2001, and has been producing spontaneous images of street scenes in Italy since 2011.  Paul Crespel's street images are nearly always black and white, and are not posed or set up.  Paul Crespel does not use Photoshop; the images he exhibits are as they came out of the camera, with only a little adjustment of overall contrast and luminosity.
