Paul Halpern is a retired engineer who has lived in Eugene, Oregon since 2004, by way of the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sierra Nevada. His interest in film photography originated with a camera given to him in high school, but then lay dormant for a few decades of college, family, and career. With the advent of the Eugene Darkroom Group, Halpern has taken advantage of their facilities to learn about cameras, film, and (hopefully) creative art. While enjoying the process of film photography, his eye is caught by interesting shapes, textures, and the juxtaposition of the natural and the built environments. Halpern is also a co-founder of Whiteaker Printmakers, a non-profit, member-supported printmaking studio located in the Whiteaker area of Eugene.
