IMG_3405Australian photographer Patrick Brown’s images are testament to his remarkable versatility of approach and commitment to the profession.

Patrick Brown has assembled an impressive volume of outstanding photographs, tracing the eclecticisms of our time across the globe. Faultless in the portrayal of the human condition, hopes, and disillusionment, the everyday and the extraordinary are captured in the instinctive and the single releases of the shutter.

An ongoing journey of discovery, Patrick’s subjects as well as the process of photography are imbued with the freshness and the enthusiasm animated by the prefect marriage of technique and intuition.

Patrick Brown’s images demand involvement and invited contemplation. A finely tuned sensibility to his subject matter creates a prefect balance; the camera, the photographer become almost imperceptible, without every being invasive or distant.
