Patrick Brown has lived and worked in Thailand for nearly 20 years, documenting critical issues across the Asia region often under-reported by the mainstream media. His work on the illegal trade in endangered animals won a World Press Photo Award in 2004 and Patrick continued working on the project for the next decade, covering its dealers, stockpiles, trafficking routes and markets, before publishing the book ‘Trading to Extinction’ in 2014.
In 2019 he published ‘No Place On Earth’ a series of portraits of and conversations with survivors of the massacres of Rohingya villages perpetrated in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State in 2017. The massacres were described by a human rights official at the UN as ‘a textbook example of ethnic cleansing’.
Patrick’s work has been exhibited at the International Centre of Photography in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Tokyo, and Visa pour l’Image in France and is held in private collections.
