Erasing Lines is the story of a cross culture found all over the world, and Patricia focuses her lens on Santa Barbara. In 2008, Patricia started documenting the local drag culture, following the people, performances and how they shared their lives with each other and the public. This series is about acceptance, about the ability to be comfortable in your own skin. The girls opened their homes, their lives, and let Patricia in.
While there are a few images of their performances, what I am attracted to is the intimacy between photographer and subject. How many of us would allow a camera into our bathroom to document our dressing? I can’t imagine many. Certainly not me.
Humanity exposed. In a beautiful way...
