Artist Paul Davies first became interested in photography while watching his dad develop photos in a darkroom. Now aged 44, he’s just had one of his artworks, ‘Belvedere Loop’ acquired by the prestigious Getty Museum in Los Angeles. ⁠

“I never forget seeing the piece of white photo paper going into the developing bath and just appearing,” he says of watching his father in his home darkroom. Asked how it feels to be in the Getty collection, he says it reminds him “of the excitement of getting into photography as a kid.” ⁠
