Patrick Stearns
The “Illustrious” Career of Patrick Stearns My interest in photography began in 1963 when I was about fourteen years old and I developed my first photograph under the basement stairs of my parents house using a bare light bulb to make a contact print. It was a magical experience watching that latent image appear in the developing solution, and my fascination with the photographic process has never waned. In the late 1980’s my work changed from primarily shooting color landscapes to applying black and white photography as a means of personal expression. Using my camera to explore the world is, for me, much more satisfying and a great deal more interesting than traditional landscape photography. I especially enjoy working on long term projects, such as the Portland Grid Project and the Westside light rail construction (one of Portland, Oregon’s mass transit systems) because they give me the opportunity to build a rapport with the people I am working with, as well as the time needed to understand and explore my subject matter.
