Norwegian Forest Eilean Donan Castle Sussex Field

Peter Watson's photographs are graphically conceived chronicles of light and the landscape. Based in England, UK, he specializes in the creation of large format and panoramic photographs. While Watson's subject matter tends to fall into the traditionalist landscape tradition, he has a distinct leaning towards contemporary minimalism. His colors can be bright and vivid, as they are in his piece, Sussex Field, but they can also be moody, as in Littondale. For his first exhibit with galleryNOW, he is showing panoramas, photographed using a 6X17 panoramic camera and produced as archival pigment prints on hand made 100% cotton watercolour paper.

This first rank photographer is the author of two books, "Light in the Landscape - a photographer's year" and "The Field Guide to Landscape Photography," published by GMC Publications.

Watson was educated at Wallasey Grammar School and College where he graduated with a diploma in art. In 1993 he earned a diploma in photography from the New York Institute of Photography. Watson has exhibited at many galleries and art centers, including the Sharp Edge Gallery in Kendal, Cumbria and the Llanrug Arts Centre. Watson's exhibition "Taking Waves" is opening in April of 2005 at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Birkenhead, Merseyside.
