About me

Patricia A Tutt, Dip Arch, RIBA, Cert Ed, ARPS, CPAGB, PhD
Peel, Isle of Man, British Isles
Patricia has been using a camera for over sixty years, and she is still as enthusiastic, if nowhere near as nimble, as she was when she got her first 35 mm camera aged sixteen. From the beginning, her career as an architect has informed her passion for photography – and vice versa. Her work is shown in a series of portfolios illustrating both current and long-standing themes in her photography, which date from the 'sixties to the present. Working in mono and colour, she is increasingly taking a fine art approach in her work, pursuing specific ideas, with an increasing trend toward Minimalism, or the exploration of textures and the play of light. Her architectural background informs her vision and influences her work.

Whilst much of her photography is of architectural subjects, she has also always taken images of street photography, landscape, wildlife, flora and anything else that catches her eye. She particularly likes to create mood and atmosphere with form, texture, space and the play of light – whether with architectural subjects or natural scenes.

An Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, her work has been exhibited in the Isle of Man, the UK, and Malawi and she has undertaken commissions from governments, international aid organisations, private clients, consultants and contractors. Both her recent PhD on Manx Vernacular Architecture (2012) and her substantial book on the Architecture of the Isle of Man (2013) are extensively illustrated with her photographs. Most of her photographs are available as prints and greetings cards, all of which she produces herself.

Patricia is a member of the Western (Isle of Man) Photographic Society, where there is always the stimulus to produce new and interesting work.
