Artist Profile


  • Heather Patterson


Heather Patterson is an Emergency Physician who believes that providing care for patients is a shared experience of humanity. Telling authentic stories of patients and front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the photographs provide a visual voice for those battling this invisible enemy and highlight the common themes of teamwork, vulnerability, resilience, empathy, joy and suffering. She hopes that her photography will validate the experiences of front-line workers and will inspire hopefulness during these challenging times. Her work can be found on Instagram @heather.l.patterson and will be published in a book available to the public later this year.
