WENDY  PATON

Paton's keen interest in photography began in 1981 while in the throes of a groundbreaking career training and driving Standardbred racehorses. She went on to study at the International Center of Photography in New York City, learning the intricacies of night photography from Michael Kenna and darkroom printing from her mentor and collaborator, master printer, Chuck Kelton.

 

Paton had her first solo exhibition in New York City at Sous Les Etoiles Gallery in 2010 and has had numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and Europe.

 

In 2012 the launch of her first monograph, Visages de Nuit, published by Kehrer Verlag, coincided with the solo museum exhibition,

Wendy Paton:  Visages de Nuit, in Moscow at the Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography.  In 2014 Paton's first U. S. solo museum exhibition, WENDY PATON | NUIT BLANCHE, opened at The James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  Her images have been published in international publications as well as exhibition and museum catalogs, and appeared on CNN and Russia Today television.

 

Her photographs are included in the permanent collections of Musee de la Photographie, James A. Michener Art Museum, Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography in Moscow, International Center of Photography, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Personal Collection of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco as well as other notable private collections.

 

"Paton's images are portraits and stories captured with the craft of perception and the energy of visual instinct.  Her eye is that of celebrant as well as voyeur, and in graphic compositions of black and white, she offers personal and intimate glimpses of our human, ineffable presence".  Philip Clark, The ARTPOINT
