Patrick Patterson (US, b.1977)
Patrick Patterson has spent much of his career documenting human rights and conflict. Patrick’s work is a reflection of how photography can influence change through photographic narratives and the importance of giving voice to those who are not heard. Each photograph is a document; evidence that someone or something has been seen.
Patrick’s work on undocumented migrants in the Midwest provides an opportunity for viewers to question their biases of people crossing the US southern border. His work on Texas Death Row sheds light on wrongful convictions based on racial bias, and his recent work has taken him to Poland and Ukraine where he has documented one of the largest refugee crises in the world, and exposed Russian war crimes.
