Piece description from the artist
In the Sierra Madre of Mexico lies a small pueblo called Hidalgo. Home to Cemex, this pueblo is also world known for its rock climbing. The limestone cliffs of El Potrero Chico (the little corral) rise more than 2,000 feet above the pueblo. At the base is a lush oasis, La Posada, a place for climbers to rest and refuel while they enjoy what Mexico has to offer.
My focus and intent as a photographer is to transport the viewer from their place in space and time to another world. I am an adventure photographer who's goal is to capture those images that epitomize adventure. I want to instill in my viewers a sense of transformation and transportation of their mind – to take the viewer to the places and situations where the photographs reside. I want the viewer's heart rate to increase when they see an adrenaline filled photo; a sense of height and dizziness when they see a photo from a mountain top; a sense of calming and relaxation when they focus on the awe-inspiring landscapes of seldom visited positions. I strive to embody adventure in every photograph and strive to share these images with everyone.
Patrick is currently working full time as a rock climbing guide in Colorado and travels as much as he can.
