Here at BWGallerist, our niche of photography tends not to stray beyond the tradition of Black and White photography. Our friend Peter Treiber’s most recent series, Ethereal Luminescence, is a polar opposite, pushing the limits of what photography can now be.
Born in Brooklyn, Peter Treiber grew up in a family of painters and photographers. He worked in New York City as a photo assistant and then earned an AA degree in graphic design at SUNY Farmingdale/NY and a BFA in photography from the Arts Center College of Design/California.
Treiber’s most recent fine art series, “Ethereal Lumiscence,” is an ongoing series of abstract, expressionistic photographs. Begun in 2012 at a botanical garden where people were enjoying a light show, it evolved into capturing those feelings at other public gatherings that include dramatic lighting — light shows, urban street scenes, fireworks and amusement park rides.
Treiber’s work is now available to the public in Kutztown until Sunday, March 6th.
