PATRICE HELMAR - EPISODE 3

“I’m not dumb, I like Europe”

Patrice got her start in photography as a young camera tester for allegedly broken tourist cameras at her father’s photography store in Alaska. She holds two masters degrees, one in education and the other, an MFA from Columbia School of the Arts. Her plan now is to split her time between Alaska and New York City for as long as she can continue to find work. Patrice admits with great shame that she is active on Instagram. She is also working on some film projects. Clips of these films can be seen below.

Hosts: Michael Chovan-Dalton and Anibal Pella-Woo
