Exploring his background in music, science, graphic art, photography, sport and film making, _forever1995 is both experimental and facilitating.
_forever1995 was founded in 2018 to create a platform of artistic projects that sat outside of the commercial work of photographer Paul Petch. Coming of age in the 1990's is the foundation for Paul's love to emphasise the human form and condition through our environment, technology and the system we thrive in.
Paul's work explores narratives surrounding consumer culture, capitalist post modern society & popular media culture.
