PAUL MOBLEY is a commercial photographer who graduated from Detroit’s Center for Creative Studies and then moved to New York City to study portraiture. He assisted such prominent photographers as Annie Leibovitz, Steve Steigman, and David Langley before branching out on his own.
Since then, Paul has worked with corporate, advertising, and editorial clients, including American Express, Sony, Citigroup, and Ford. He has also photographed the likes of celebrities from Roger Daltrey to Aretha Franklin.
American Farmer, Paul’s first book, started as a personal project photographing farmers from his home state of Michigan. It grew into a body of work that has led him on a three-year, nearly 100,000-mile journey capturing farmers from Alaska to Maine. His second book, Everyday Heroes, is a collection of 50 extraordinary “ordinary” individuals who have made an astonishing difference in the lives of others.
Mobley’s third book and most ambitious project to date “If I Live to Be 100” will be released in October 2016, by Rizzoli. Mobley will be featuring stunning portraits of centenarians from all 50 states, as well as insightful interviews with the subjects and their families. This remarkable project will share the keys to long life from these celebrated human beings.
