My name is Patricio Murphy, I’m a photographer.
And a musician.
In no particular order.
I was born in Buenos Aires in 1966. Working musician and amateur photographer for over 25 years, at some point in life roles got inverted. In 2001 I covered the social unrest that ended with President Fernando de la Rua’s government and engaged part time in photojournalism. By 2010 I was devoted full time, collaborating with now extinct citizen journalism agency Demotix, Latinphoto and Brazil Photo Press agencies. Since 2012 my work is represented by ZUMA Press, and since 2020 my work is also distributed by SOPA Images.
My images have been published published on international media, both online and in print. Highlights include La Nación, Clarin, Infobae, El Litoral de Santa Fe, (Argentina), Wall Street Journal, TMZ, Wild (USA). Paris Match, Politis, Le Monde, Les Echos, Humanitè (France). The Guardian, The Times, Vice UK, The Telegraph, The Mirror, The Sun (United Kingdom). Folha de Sao Paulo, Jornal de Sao Paulo, Diario do Comercio (Brazil). La Jornada, El Universal, (Mexico). Die Welt, Deutsche Welle, Das Erste, Spiegel Online (Germany). La Stampa, Corriere della Sera (Italy). China Daily, News CN (China). ABC, La Razon, El Diario (Spain). Vi Menn (Norway). Volvo Spirit Magazine (Belgium). Politiken, Ekstrabladet (Denmark). RT, Izsvestia, News.ru, Tass (Russia), Expressen (Sweden) Foreigner, Iltalehti (Finland).
In June 2021 my first solo exhibition, Invisible, a multimedia piece featuring pictures of isolation during the 2020 lockdown, opened in virtual format on Espacio Gardel, part of the Cultural Centers Circuit of Buenos Aires. It’s my first solo exhibition, after many collective shows, including last year’s ICPConcerned: Global Images for a Global Crisis.
I’m based in Firmat, a little country town in Southeast Santa Fe Province, Argentina, and available for work and travel as needed.
