Ed Peters Photography

“While I once worked as a photojournalist, the focus of my work has changed. My more recent efforts can probably be described ( for lack of a better term) as “street photography”. At any rate, it’s certainly a kind of photography that minimizes definitive narratives. So, I hope, with that in mind, that these pictures invite viewers to formulate their own personal interpretations of images whose meanings are inherently ambiguous.”~ Ed Peters

Ed Peters is drawn by color. His compositions are impacted by the advertising and commercialism surrounding our environment. His images imply that everything and anything, including a colorful plastic bag, every day objects, can be seen as art. Even pure advertising, whose sole goal is to lure in a customer to spend,  can be seen as art. Something to be celebrated and enjoyed as well as function as a thought provoker.

When you look at Ed’s photos, you can’t help but think: pop, poetic, lyrical. Some of his images are like metaphorical mirrors of our own creation. Others stir something intangible in us. Perhaps it is the juxtaposition of a simple and grounded  life against the complex and superficial quality of our society as demonstrated in billboards, graffiti and advertising.

Ed’s images have one thing in common though, they spark our existential imagination. Opening our minds to new ways to look at our world,  color, and anything else that comes to mind. This phenomenon help add a kind of authenticity to our busy daily lives. What a wonderful gift of a man from Patterson, New York.
