Patrick Boghossian

I first stepped into the world of photography in the summer of 2009; I had just bought my first camera. At the time, my objective was to immortalize high-quality snapshots of my traveling experiences. I had come to realize it was a shame not to be able to crystallize my adventures in foreign lands.

I suppose it is curiosity that made me want to go the extra mile. Watching and learning from others’ work, I enjoy all kinds of photos. But there is a particular style of photography to which I am most sensitive.
The presence of human beings in my pictures is extremely important to me. Feelings and expressions through the silhouettes of our faces and bodies are among what I care about the most.

I try not to capture just “images” but to capture a scene the way my mind remembers and maps it, so when I look at one of my photographs I don’t stare at something steady, but rather something dynamic and meaningful. Like Eudora Welty said, “A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.” I do my best for my picture to look alive. A photo shouldn’t need a story to back itself up; it has to speak for itself.

Being able to express and release my energy through the arts has become primordial. I try hard to communicate feelings through my pictures, so when one looks at them they can see a facet of my personality. I dearly hope this introduction serves as a stepping-stone for you to appreciate the work exposed on this website.
