"Paul Treacy loves to find mystery and menace in the everyday" - Millennium Images
I am an observational photographer and photobook maker.
Though always on the lookout for an exceptional still image, I'm really a traditional photo-essayist in both my personal and commercial work.
I'm a graduate of the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program at the International Center of Photography School in New York, class of 2000.
My work has been represented by Millennium Images in London since 2003.
I trained as a graphic designer in Ireland in the 80s before moving to England to study photography and creative writing. I began my photography career back in 1992.
I am a bravery medalist, awarded by the Irish Government's Deeds of Bravery Council for a winter river rescue in 1990.
Clients and publications over the years have included; The New York Times Magazine, CNN World, The Guardian, The Irish Times, CoStar Group UK, The Press Association, The Institute of Psychiatry, Court TV, The BBC and Channel 4.
