Patrick Lajoie

Fine art photographer Patrick Lajoie is known for his evocative travel documentary images that impart a sense of nostalgia and remembrance. His creative practice encomposses his passions for photography, composition, color and experimentation. Commonly recurring themes such as beaches and bathing scenes, vintage cars and surfing, are chosen as much for their refection of the artist’s personal interests as for their ability to channel collective memories and a spirit of adventure. Rather than being planned or staged his images are primarily discovery driven and rely on frequent travels in search of the elusive chance combination of the right subject matter, location, lighting and compositional potential. His work is regularly exhibited at major international art fairs and is held in private and corporate collections worldwide, including a permanent six panel installation by Delta Airlines at Los Angeles International Airport.
