Patrick is a professional Zambian photographer specialising in fine art black and white images of the natural world. Throughout his career he has consistently won awards for his work and has been exhibited in the National Geographic gallery, the Natural History Museum in London as well as the Smithsonian in Washington DC.
Timeless is a new book of fine art photography. In this captivating work he draws inspiration from one of Africa's true remaining wildernesses. 'Wherever I go I am always drawn back to the Luangwa Valley. It is a magical place, unforgivably harsh at times and abundantly lush and fruitful at others. It is Africa as it used to be."
In this collection Patrick's photographic language speaks of simplicity, created by empty space and the medium of monochrome. His sense of atmosphere and composition blur the line between photography and art. The animals in his photographs are profoundly iconic, sentient characters creating a narrative of the Luangwa Valley, one of the last truly wild places remaining on this continent. Vast. Remote. Timeless.

“Kudumbisiana (dialogue) is the general theme of this book. Artworks in this book came about from my interactions with other people. I have realised that in the communities where we live there are people from many walks of life. Simple acts of doing good like taking food parcels to your friends and relatives when you visit them, fruit and juice to the sick, even just saying sorry when you have wronged someone, thank you when others have done something good for you, or even giving way to the elders so that they pass are becoming very rare.”
