Patricia Pettitt is a photographer working in fine art and fashion and currently based in Porto.

Born in Portugal in 1980, Patricia started her career as a dancer and worked with dance theatre companies around Europe and the UK where she lived until 2015.

Patricia’s journey into the photography world started in 2018 with various photography courses at Instituto de Produção Cultural e Imagem (IPCI) where she gained a Masters in Artistic Photography in October 2020.

Her photographic language relies strongly on her experience as a performer. In her personal projects, Patricia works primarily with self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that explore our human sensibilities, through staged stories presented as film stills or dramatic images that create a visual dialogue between the viewer and the artist.
