About Patsy Hayes
Over the years, my camera has proven to be the most cherished of travel companions, my passport to discovery and wonder. My photography is largely inspired by my passage through the world. My eyes are constantly remarking details of light and colour which call me to frame and capture the poetry of the physical world. My camera allows me to record and distill fleeting moments, banal details which most would pass by without remarking. As stated by Susan Sontag, "to photograph is to collect the world". Camera in hand, I explore and document my interactions with nature and culture, transforming the light and colour of the moment into aesthetic meditations on being. The best reveal new insights and perspectives into the world, glimpses into the heart of a constantly changing world.
