Photographing the deterioration of America at the turn of the century, Leo Fitzpatrick says “fuck you to
digital nightlife photography.” In reaction to the accessibility and degradation of photography, he seeks
out complex yet simple images of landscapes, street corners and aging architecture. His observations
come from having traveled cross-country by train and car eight times.

Leo Fitzpatrick’s artwork has been exhibited worldwide. His photographs have been featured in several
publications including Journal, Joulouse and Mass Appeal.
