Chicago photographer and designer, Paul Octavious, is one of those people whose strong visual sensibility enable him to see and create something out of nothing. Many of his series are a response to something he found or came across, and it’s his unique approach that makes his images so special. I’m featuring work from 3 series, Same Hill Different Day is a particular favorite.
For the past 2 years I have visited a beautiful mound of earth that I have come to call “the hill.” Each time I have come to the hill a new story is told to me as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play.
