PAUL GREENBERG

b. 1935, Kansas City, Missouri


Paul Greenberg became interested in taking pictures when he was in the 5th grade. At age 12, his parents allowed him to convert a closet into a darkroom, and he has continued doing only film photography and making silver prints. He works in black and white, and since 1990 he has photographed exclusively in the panorama format.


He is a self-taught photographer. He considers himself a street photographer, and has learned by attending workshops and master classes, and has been a serious student of the recognized great street photographers via lectures and his large collection of photographic books.


He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri in 1957, and in 1961 he received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Missouri. Following graduation, he moved to Dallas, Texas to pursue his training in Internal Medicine, following which he spent two years in the Army Medical Corps. Upon discharge in 1967, he returned to Dallas and set up his medical practice. After a long and successful career, he retired in December 2014 and since that time has spen most of his time with "things photographic."


Despite having a full time, solo medical practice he has managed to exhibit his work in 38 one-person exhibitions, and over 100 group and jury shows in the United States and overseas.
