Peter's artwork analyses the familiar, banal and anonymity in the everyday environment, through walking and serial revisiting. Each impulsive recording is a reflective examination of the ‘knowing’ of a present experience set against its later remembering, and memory (personal, fantastical, misremembered, nostalgia) that defines the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

I have worked on several projects with Wolverhampton NHS and specifically the Penn Hospital using images to create therapeutic artworks with patients with degenerative illnesses.
My PhD analysed, by practice, the notion of being, present and absent, in volumes of images and the archive in Fine Art, Documentary and Visual Anthropological practices. I am interested in hoe the visual informs written theory and creates new and exciting opportunities to analyse the everyday, illness and trauma through photographic practices and elicitation methods.
