My work is an attempt to capture the feelings associated with life, memory, time and space. If I were to create a term to describe my style it would be something along the lines of intuitive emotional impressionism or expressionism. I tend to follow my emotions rather than a rigid plan both while I photograph and in post- production. I get inspired by what I see and what I imagine and allow my emotions to guide me. In many ways my images are more about how I feel than what I see.
Peter’s interest in photography began at an early age while embarking on long road trips across North America. He wanted to find a way to capture the feelings he experienced while looking out at the vast landscapes. After studying photography at Ryerson University/Humber College and Art History at the University of Toronto, he continued to explore the world around him through his lens. Using his emotions as his guide, he examines themes of time, space and our relative place within them. Having recently been diagnosed with ADHD, he has come to realize that in many ways his images are an escape from his own cluttered mind. Peter’s work belongs to personal and corporate collections around the world.
Besides his formal education, Peter has participated at numerous group shows in Europe, Canada as well as a recent solo show in New York.
