For 45 years, Patricia Ramaer has been wearing a camera around her neck and exploring the art of photography.
Growing up in Britain, Canada and the Netherlands, Patricia has been photographing since receiving her first box brownie at the age of 7. Her freelance photography career actually began at the age of 14 when Patricia would photograph her school events and sell her images to teachers, classmates and their families. After studying at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design, Vancouver, BC. Canada and at the Photography Academy Amsterdam, Patricia freelanced as a graphic artist for magazines such as Elle. Patricia graduated with her Masters in Fine Art and Humanities in 2016 (Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design).
In October 2018, Patricia spent a month in the High Arctic, undertaking an art residency on the tall ship, Antigua, as a part of the Arctic Circle Expedition. AUTHOR is delighted to feature a selection of limited edition prints of Patricia's photography from this expedition to the Arctic.
Patricia brings the past and present of Polar exploration to this series. When asked about her work she states, “my works are a tribute to the realms of the unseen, ancestors, memory and time/space/matter. I’m spellbound by the mere magic of photography, what it is and is not”. This series, entitled “Between” has pure Arctic energy infused through all the works, revealing the otherworldliness of this unique landscape and capturing its purity before it is lost forever.
