“All the Usual Subjects” a limited edition book of Peter’s images available through this site see Pricing Page.
In a review on Nikonians.com, the Nikon user site, J Ramon Palacios writes
“The Usual Subjects go about their daily chores, just being anonymous heroes of everyday life in non-suburban America. Through the pages, the subjects reveal an uncommon degree of rapport with the photographer, so each one talks about him, without talking. The photographer, in return, applies his art of seeing to capture and reveal to us not just the strong character of each one of these now un-usual subjects, made unusual by that bond, but also their common surroundings, made interesting and beautiful because of the subjects, the friendship and Peter’s art.” A class in composition, exposure and the art of seeing, the book ends to soon leaving us wanting for more.
