Pat Greenfield was born in Nottingham, England on 8 March 1946. Pat is a self-taught Taranaki based photographer and self-described archivist recording "history as it happens now".
She undertook a photography course by correspondence through the New York Institute of Photography, which taught her the technicalities of photographic production.
This body of work is a 20 year photographic and scientific journey of discovery into the effects of climate change along the Taranaki coastline.
There is a particular emphasis on the Three Sisters Beach and the neighbouring Four Brothers Beach. We are shown the growing and often dramatic impact storms and earthquakes have had on our vulnerable coastline. Tongapōrutu has one of the fastest eroding coastlines in the world, were the erosion is measurable within human timeframes.
