For those who know, the photography industry has lost a great master.
On September 4 2019 at 5am I heard the news and suddenly the world got a bit more darker. I have always loved Peter’s work and his use of light coupled with his beautifully narrative black and white, one could spend hours studying the care and passion he instilled in his work. He focused on the subject and not the bells and whistles that most of us are fascinated with.
I feel there is a grappling hole left in the world, as many photographers rush in to fill it, I feel it will be one that will be open for a long time. His ability to capture the purity of his subject and use light as if it was a creation of his own, is astounding. He will be greatly missed and as I write this almost a month after his death, I am left with a hollow feeling in my soul.
I hope I am worthy of the torch you have passed on.
