Josh Patterson

I'm an explorer and photographer specializing in California's public lands and obscure pockets of wilderness in the western Mojave Desert.

My work has been published in the Los Angeles Times and across a broad spectrum of media both nationally and internationally.

I bring a fine art, landscape aesthetic to trail races, showcasing not only your runners but the epic places they run. Interested? Send me an email and we'll discuss your race.


ARTIST STATEMENT

In an age where many protections for our wild lands are eroding, it is my hope that my love for these precious, unspoiled places convinces you of their value and that you too become an advocate for their preservation.

WHERE IT BEGAN

This is where the hunger woke for what was unknown and hidden in folds of the earth. This was where secrets unfurled like flowers in tumbled basalt and lithic scatter. This, where furtive water pooled and ancients gathered to absorb its minerality and the knowledge of stones. Where small fires in shallow alcoves whispered amber phrases and stained the ceilings with their memories. They have vanished but their fragments murmur.

This is where I began to understand - where the earth was torn and rain gathered in hidden pools.
