Seemingly commonplace subject matter from Hill’s own surroundings become emblematic, abstract portraits and still-lifes in his pictures. His daughter Sam is a frequent subject. In 1990, he was awarded a grant from the Royal Photographic Society and he has written several books on photography, including White Peak, Dark Peak (1990). Today, Paul Hill is a professor of Photography at the De Montfort University.
