Patricia A. Bender is a photography-based visual artist living and working in New Jersey and Michigan. She began studying photography in the early 2000s, and was hooked from the moment she shot and developed her first image. She works exclusively in the darkroom with black and white media, and personally creates each image from the moment it is conceived through the finished gelatin silver print.
Bender exhibits globally, and is the recipient of numerous awards for her work. Her work is held in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and other public, corporate, and private collections.
