Reality doesn’t always present itself as it really is. Patricia van de Camp explores the relativity of reality and of beauty in particular. What happens when you remove beauty from reality?, What if you leave out or add elements?. It’s a classical view that one cannot add anything to pure beauty nor take away from it and not make things worse.

Patricia explores this notion in her photography. She positions a wild animal in a dilapidated factory building or she digitally cuts the portraits she made into pieces and then re-assembles them in a special way. Patricia takes beauty from reality and with her photos creates a new, thus far unknown beauty.

In her search Patricia explores the boundaries. How far can one wander from the classical notion of beauty before it gets gaudy or seems forced?. Her photos introduce people to a reality with a different notion of beauty. The technical element of her photos could not have been brought about without Patricia’s wide knowledge of photography and graphic design. Had she not been inspired by philosophy and psychology Patricia’s search would have stranded in a never-ending labyrinth.
