“By consciously excluding historical references, Peter composes images that
transcend time. His photographs are less bound by material references to
particular eras,” said world-renowned travel photographer James Whitlow
Delano. “As a result, his compositions engage the viewer in direct
relationship with his human subjects. The forms, lines and colors become
organic elements enhancing the subjects. Even perspective and motion are
endowed with intrigue and mysticism. “
The “Monadic Nomad” collection will feature one-of-a-kind pieces printed on
handmade paper from Nepal, as well as environmentally safe canvas. The
eclectic combination of images and printing processes will convey the
complex mix of sights and sensations that Peter experienced while on his
journey and capture the spiritual, mystical essence of India's exotic
culture. Images will be available for presale at www.ruprechtstudios.com.
