Johnny Patience

About
Johnny Patience is a Fine Art photographer based in the United States, where he lives with his wife Rebecca Lily. Born and raised in Europe, his love for photography has brought him to many countries around the world. The foundation of Johnny’s work is a unique combination of fine art, travel, and street photography. He shoots film exclusively and works with a minimalist approach to gear: one camera, one lens and natural light.

Johnny documents people and places in an authentic, emotionally compelling way, which has given his photography an original and recognizable handwriting. Johnny published his first book “Arriving Home – A love story” in 2016. A selection of his images were published in “Maine – Life in a Day” in 2017 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of DownEast Books. He has been a contributor for several magazines and is currently working on his second book, “Contrasts”, which is set for release in 2018. His photographs have been awarded by the IPA, and featured online and in print.

Johnny co-hosts NYCWLK and LNDNWLK, non-profit photo walks and social gatherings based in London and New York City that are open to photographers from all levels of experience. His film photography workshops have been supported by brands like Leica, Kodak Alaris and Richard Photo Lab.

Johnny is the founder of the collaborative Aspen Gallery in New England and Propeller Maine, an indie publishing company that helps photographers make and distribute high quality small edition photo books.
