Paul Eng was born and raised in New York. At an early age, he learned the craft of photography from a neighborhood mentor. With New York City being the backdrop of his development, sophistication and street education came hand in hand. This melding of the two opposites shows it's influence in his work, full of cynicism yet elegant.
Originally trained as an architect, he worked as an architectural designer, then shifted his focus to music. He performed and recorded with various bands in New York and is credited on several records. Further creative pursuits led him to design, art direction and advertising, where he worked for over 10 years. These experiences have given him a well rounded vision in which he now creates photographs grounded in higher thought and emotions.
Paul's editorial work can be seen on the pages of many domestic and international magazines, such as: Esquire, Rolling Stone, FHM, Men's Health, Maxim, Travel + Leisure and others. While some of his commercial clients have been MacDonald's, American Express, Wrigley's, Johnny Walker, ING Direct, Tele2 and others.
He currently lives and works between New York City and Moscow, Russia.
