Project Description


kimberly patterson

An East Bay native, Kim Patterson has been practicing photography for 15 years, after being inspired by her grandfather, who photographed all of his trips and created slide shows for the family.  He gave her his Minolta camera at age 15, when she enrolled in a photography class in high school and began her exploration of photography as the lead photographer on the school newspaper.  Kim now has a B.A. in art with an emphasis in photography from SFSU. Her photographic inspiration comes from everyday life, and from objects in their natural environment.  Most of her photos are of urban landscapes, capturing objects not generally viewed as “beautiful.”
