Beautiful My Desire – Heidi Kirkpatrick




Power Station

“Pieces of My Past”

Light is a key element in photography and photography is a key element in my life.

I take pictures of people, places and things; I photograph to remember.



“Pieces of My Past” are remnants of my earlier print work, memories taken out of a box and returned to the light from which they came.

About Heidi –

Heidi Kirkpatrick is an established fine art photographer and educator based in Portland, Oregon.

Throughout Kirkpatrick’s career her work has explored the female figure, family narratives and contemporary issues of being a woman. Heidi’s intent is to create works of art that are approachable in form and content, are interactive, yet fragile. Kirkpatrick applies film positives onto objects such as vintage children’s blocks, books, mahjong tiles, ashtrays, and tins, creating unique photo objects that take on a new life.



Kirkpatrick has exhibited widely over the last ten years and her work is held in numerous private and public collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Springfield Museum of Art, Ohio; OHSU Corporate Collection, Portland, Oregon, and The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, Louisiana. Heidi was also selected for the Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 for 2011 and 2012.

Kirkpatrick is represented by G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle, Washington; Panopticon Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts; and Wall Space Gallery, Santa Barbara, California.
