Paul O’Malley

The Receding Earth (2023)


Paul O'Malley is a New York-based photographer and writer who explores themes of loneliness and solitude in busy, overflowing and bustling environments. Drawing on his ability to read people, personalities and emotions, he seeks out moments that hold significant weight. His work is observant and is about the experience of being there, but not there, at the same time. O’Malley aims to offer viewers a momentary pause: a fleeting yet profound connection to shared human experience.
