Peter Peryer. Portrait of a Photographer
Director Greg Stitt
Producer Trevor Haysom
Cinematography Leon Narbey
In collaboration with the Auckland Festival of Photography, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision presents a documentary profile of Peter Peryer. The film discusses Peryer’s then current project in which he attempts to get a portrait of a bull, and his new work with Meccano.
Peryer describes his work as autobiographical: “My photographs are self-portraits. The photographs are somehow related to my past. I don’t know why or how.” Peryer shows us the process involved in taking photographs – from their initial conception to sorting through the proofs. He also talks about the evolution of his work from moody and angst-ridden in the 1970s to clinical and constructivist in the 1980s.
