2.18.14 (insert cool quote/poem here)
One of my favorite poets did “insert cool quote/poem here”
The barren land of my heart
can not learn love
in measured strides.
No matter the distance,
I walk and possess,
the inability to move on;
I’m left to regress.
From Drifter series.
"Across the spectrum of Patriziʼs work, we see an approach to visual storytelling that is marked by an intellectual and artistic vigor, at the heart of which is a compassion and feeling for the people and cultures he reveals in his vibrant essays", says Wayne Ford. Paolo Patrizi is a documentary photographer, whose recent stories explore the underlying themes and contradictions between traditions and modernity and cultural disconnections produced from rapid economic growth. Paolo’s subjects range from portraiture and feature projects to social issues and politics. His focus is always on the human and social aspects of a story.
He began his career in London working as an assistant to other professionals. While doing some freelance assignments for British magazines and design groups, he started to develop individual projects of his own. Today, his work is featured in leading publications and exhibited internationally.

Electric Mountains, 2009
Kneubühler’s Electric Mountain series commanded attention by capturing the eerie nighttime illuminations of Quebec ski resorts in photos that were both ironically picturesque and seriously documentary. Like something out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, his photos show a strange, abandoned recreational universe where the lit slopes seem like sign code directed to the stars. (Richard Rhodes)
