Who is Patri Feher
This page feature the work of a self-taught photoartist and amateur flower gardener. Over the course of 30 plus years Patri has worked in many traditional photographic mediums including several of the 'non-silver' processes and was the author of 'Adventures In Blueprinting', a manual featuring the cyanotype process. In 1987 she was chosen by the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC to represent photographic designs on fabric as 'wearable photography' and is included in their permanent design lab collection. Patri has won no awards and holds no impressive degrees, nor does she exhibit widely.
Exploring digital printmaking began in the early 1990s using analog video frames as the source. Today, her design process utilize both digital camera images and digitized botanical "scanography". The live three-dimensional objects are captured with a large-format flatbed scanner used as if it was a camera.
The majority of the traditional annual and perennial specimens you'll see in her arrangements were grown in the artist's small suburban garden, though some were pilfered from neighbors or friends' flower beds or collected from the regional meadows, seashore and woods of southern New England.
