Patricia Petersen is an interdisciplinary photographer and filmmaker from Copenhagen. She has recently graduated with a BA of first-class honours in Fine Art: Print & Time-Based Media from the University of the Arts London. Inspired by experimental ethnography, Petersen’s work aims to challenge and reframe historical, social and political narratives through a feminist lens. Her work has been exhibited across Europe and in 2019 she was invited to Festival Circulation(s) as an emerging European photographer in Paris. From 2018-2019 Petersen worked as a media content developer for Shades of Noir, a social justice platform that promotes inclusivity and diversity within Higher Education and the Arts. During this time, Petersen was the co-lead on the Shades of Noir Terms of Reference (ToR) publication titled: ‘Disabled People: The Voice of Many’. Working at Shades of Noir has significantly influenced Petersen’s projects and future goals, namely to combine social justice, human rights and advocacy with art.
