Throughout photographer Freeman Patterson's remarkable decades-long career, his ambition has been to expose the spiritual, religious, and even mystical dimensions that lie beyond the literalness of the image itself. Patterson has continually strived to have viewers appreciate the compositional grammar and unique syntax of this visual art, pushing to transcend the picturesque qualities of the image and expand the viewing moment to a longer and more profound level of experience.

For Patterson, life, the mind, and nature are fully a part of each other. Through images that both inspire and provoke, Freeman Patterson: Embracing Creation shows us that such inter-connectivity is the mechanism by which all things are affected; this is the fundamental concept that Patterson lives, believes, and expresses as art.
