BIO

Oakland born PATRICK RAFANAN has been photographing fashion and making portraits since the turn of the millennium. He studied 2D animation at California College of the Arts SF and received his BFA from Cal State University, East Bay. He recently migrated to the East Coast to join the MPS fashion photography program at the School of Visual Arts in New York where he earned his Masters degree. His work pits themes of innocence against obscurity, frequently drawing inspiration from UFO lore, 80s sci-fi horror and robot anime. Patrick Rafanan is fatally allergic to peanuts, and has made it a personal crusade to raise awareness about the perils of corn syrup and other artificial sweeteners.
