Fitzpatrick is a photographer, curator and writer. His research interests include a study of documentary works created for gallery presentations, the photographic representation of the nuclear era, visual responses to contemporary militarism and the post-Cold War history, memory and mobility of the Berlin Wall. He is a member of the Atomic Photographers Guild, an international group of documentary photographers and artists dedicated to making visible all aspects of the nuclear era.

Freedom Rocks is a collaborative project started in 2003 that documents the post-1989 movement of the Berlin Wall. No longer activated by Cold War associations of fear and dread, the project has evolved to depict the everyday life of the Berlin Wall and challenges assumptions that the Wall’s history ended when the Cold War did.
