PATRICIA VON AH
INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT & REQUESTS
ARTIST, PHOTOGRAPHER & FILMMAKER
Patricia von Ah was born in San Diego and raised in Los Angeles. Patricia is currently based in Switzerland and works internationally as a fine art, advertising, fashion and editorial photographer and filmmaker.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the Art Center College of Design in California and starting out with pencil and brush, recognized early on that photography and film were her medium. She began her career in portraiture and in 2001 her portraits of prominent British artists were displayed at Sotheby’s in New York. Always with a desire for travel, she enjoys capturing on the road and suggests unusual locations whenever possible for her projects. With the likes of Yoko Ono, Dennis Hopper and John Travolta in front of her lens, her portraits of actors, models, artists or objects are as diverse as the subjects themselves. Patricia uses both classic and digital photographic techniques in pursuit of her particular passion of discovering beauty in stillness and motion.
As an artist, Patricia has been working with photography and film exploring: displacement, chirality, transition, offing, skin and circles of confusion. She has exhibited internationally and is currently working on a collaboration mixed media project titled VOLO, which focuses on displacement and human flight.
