Paul Octavious is one of those upbeat, creative spirits that we can just barely keep up with: we’re constantly in awe of his clever take on the commonplace (have you seen how beautifully he organizes his books?) and the genuine kindness and enthusiasm for life that seems to emanate from each interaction with him.
Based in Chicago, Paul has had his projects featured by the New York Times, the New Yorker and the Paris Review and has worked with brands like Nike, Wired and the Wall Street Journal. Needless to say, the guy is kind of a big deal–and he’s also a big fan of his Camps Bay Backpack.
The interior of Paul’s Camps Bay: completely customizable and can protect everything from extra lenses to an afternoon snack!
He’s currently working on The Pantone Project: he carries Pantone color cards around in his Camps Bay Backpack and matches the colors up to everyday items. He was kind enough to share his recent project with us, and we’re practically emerald with envy at the beautiful places he’s traveled to and the incredible shots he’s taken. Here’s a collection of our favorite images:
