Exploring Photography

Pat Tennant



I am a part time photographer and painter residing in Victoria, BC. I am a graduate of the Vancouver Island School of Art's certificate program.

My photographic work has included a considerable amount of night photography both in my home area of Victoria and in my travel photography. Increasingly though I have been exploring new areas of urban and street photography as well as conceptual photography incorporating mirrors in the landscape.

My night time work around Victoria has focused on a nostalgia for times past along with the isolation of light within the surrounding darkness. My formal body of work includes the series 'Night Shops' which focused on the isolated architecture of Victoria's many small corner stores.

I am presently focused on expanding my work in street photography as well as exploring new skill sets in post-production artistry. The Women’s Room (Sooke 2017) is an example of using my new post-production skills to create atmosphere and narrative.
