New Black Sounds – Paul Edwards

Every now and then we let someone who we find inspiring take over our official Spotify playlist.

This week: Paul Edwards

Paul Edwards is a photographer, stylist and creative director based in Stockholm, Sweden. With only a few years in the business he has become one of the most desired creators within the scene. After working with some of the biggest brands in the world and artists here in sweden, there is no doubt that the future is looking bright for both Paul and the creative scene in general. 

– My passion and desire for working within the creative business has for a very long time been a big part of my life. Not because of the need of confirmation, or the need of attention, but because it somehow became my way to let my mind breath, to set it free.

This all started almost four years ago, when I first fell in love with creating. The fact that i for once, had the power of putting what I had in my head and mind, into a picture, an outfit, a music video or whatever I wanted. That for me was life changing.

The journey has most definitely not been easy. But seeing where it has taken me today, all the amazing people I’ve met along the way and the beautiful places I’ve been able to visit, I couldn’t be more grateful. 

– My playlist contains a lot of what people might call ”slow” music. Not only because it’s what I prefer listening to on a daily basis but also because it somehow just like my photography, helps me find peace of mind. Within this business where stress plays a huge role, music has become my escape. My way to breath.

Listening to music for me also works a little but as a guide. It helps me visualize my work, and put my creativity in perspective.
