Patrick Ramsey’s photographs portray people who might otherwise go unnoticed. Often capturing his subjects purely in the act of being themselves, Ramsey’s work encourages connections with people who willingly or unwillingly engage with a stranger for a few moments. As a result, these strangers are able to share something of themselves in a moment of human connection.
Patrick’s photographic work began while serving in Vietnam and continued through the 1970’s when he focused on photojournalism and capturing events related to the civil and human rights struggles in the Los Angeles area. This work was a natural segue into the street photography which motivates his art today. He has traveled both nationally and internationally in the quest for images that communicate his vision.
