  • Photo Date

Hall of Mirrors appears as a fictional, non-linear narrative where we witness someone's intense psychological moment. The images refer to the ambiguous world of a woman who seems to exist in a limbo between the real and the imaginary and It is precisely in this state of limbo that her deepest desires and fears find space to penetrate into her reality. Like mirrors, they echo back to us that which dwells in the deepest, darkest recesses of our soul and reflect questions asked by the character about who we are, and who, perhaps we would really want to be.

Patricia’s journey into the photography world started in 2018 with various photography courses at IPCI where she gained a Masters in Artistic Photography in October 2020 and where she is currently an educator. Her photographic language relies strongly on her experience as a performer. Patricia works alone and stages detailed pictures in which she plays the protagonist role. Her work is based on staged photography and using this language she creates fictional stories where she is both author and character. Her images evoke issues of femininity, intimacy, beauty, desire and melancholy.
