In John Patterson’s photography journey he came to a realization that he not only captures interesting street photographs, he was also shooting his own reflection. John describes himself as a introvert, a keen observer, and an emotional person.
As a street photographer John aims to create a visual record focusing on the life in Baltimore which is usually unnoticed and undocumented. He is particularly drawn to the emotional expressiveness of young children, and the stark juxtaposition of their young lives against often challenging backgrounds.
