Street photography presents a wonderful challenge for photographers to perfect a skill that really harnesses the moment both in meaning and how the imagery appears on an esthetic level. These portfolios include works from Ireland as well as places like India & Cuba where Patrick has been lucky enough to have made the time to travel to and record different ways of living portrayed in his own unique and often times quirky style.
Born from a curiosity of the meaning of life, my journey as a photographer has been somewhat of a personal evaluation in understanding human emotion and feelings that we all experience to one degree or another.

Her in lyes the biggest challenge to human beings then ever before in history possibly.
