Photojournalist Paul Teixeira (1965) is Portuguese/Spanish by birth, but he currently works and lives near Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands. Teixeira started in the mid 1980 's as a freelance photojournalist in The Netherlands, working for Dutch Newspapers and magazines, covering a variety of subjects: from squatter riots and other violent outbursts to documentary series on Pope John Paul II and senior citizens. He went on to study journalism (both written and photojournalism) at the School voor de Journalistiek in Utrecht. After completing this study, Teixeira went on to work as reporter, editor-in-chief and publisher at various publishing companies in The Netherlands, Belgium and Spain. He recently went back to his old profession and passion: photojournalism, working mainly for national and international magazines and as one of the correspondents for an American photonews agency.
