5Q2 - Paul Guilmoth

In March 2021 we talked to Paul Guilmoth – in our format 5 questions to (5Q2), we ask the artists of our Instagram takeovers about the work they show, their influences and upcoming plans.

Paul Guilmoth

Paul Guilmoth is an artist living on a small island off the coast of Maine. They spend their nights with spider silk. They never leave the island.



Fototreff: Is there a photographer or artist who influenced you in a particular way?

Paul Guilmoth: I never stop mentioning Grouper but it was actually the thing that really changed me when I was young and set me on a search for the atmospheric.

FT: Which (photo-) book should everybody own (or you would like to have)?

PG: My personal favorites are Collier Schorr, “Neighbours/Nachbarn” and Mimi Plumb, “Landfall”.

FT: Have you started working on a new project? Any beans to spill?

PG: I can’t be spilling any beans yet but I feel as though I am nearly finished with my most recent project.

Thank you very much for this short interview and your takeover.
