Patrick Lienin Photography


Born near Basel, Switzerland, Patrick Lienin is a photographer and ecologist who grew up in Germany, until moving to the US in 2012. He studied Environmental Sciences, followed by his PhD studies and Post-Doc research in Plant Science. Over the past 15 years his passion and interest in photography progressed and he became a professional photographer producing personal and professional photography projects as a freelance artist. After living in New England he relocated with his family to Colorado in 2016. Colorado offers Patrick unique and unlimited opportunities for ultralight backpacking photo trips in the most remote parts of wilderness areas.  

Artist Statement

Patrick Lienin is a photographer and ecologist specializing in conceptual landscape and people photography. His style consists of dreamlike imagery and perspectives as well as photos that emphasize the personal and the hidden. His use of double exposure and other techniques allows him to experiment with different dimensions and horizons in order to emphasize the mysteriousness and subjectivity of the images. At best, he wants to create a photo that asks more questions than it answers.
