Hall of Mirrors

  • Photographer
    Patricia Pettitt
  • 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 started her career as a dancer and worked with dance theatre companies around Europe and the UK where she lived until 2015. Patricia’s journey into the photography world started in 2018 with various photography courses at Instituto de Produção Cultural e Imagem (IPCI) where she gained a Masters in Artistic Photography in 2020. Her photographic language relies strongly on her experience as a performer. Patricia works primarily in self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that explore our human sensibilities through abstract stories with a visual dialogue between the viewer and the artist.
