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.

Emboldened by the response received thus far for his “Ethereal Luminescence” work, Peter Treiber is looking to take the plunge and display his works at Spectrum Miami. If unfamiliar, Spectrum Miami is a five day juried art fair featuring everyone from the artists themselves to the publishers themselves. Success and exposure here could help launch Treiber land his next great opportunity.

These photographs were created with a new and unique camera technique which I created and which viewers seem to love. The New York art critic and writer, Renee Phillips, described this work as, “…a mesmerizing symphonic explosion of color, light and motion.” One of Renee’s readers, C. J., said, “I’m never at a loss for words…count this series of photographic fine art as a first! Thank you for showing your exceptional art to us.” Philadelphia’s Broad Street Review art critic, Anne R. Fabbri, described “Ethereal Luminescence” as “…”dynamic, abstract compositions in vivid, pulsating colors… raises one’s energy level— just what’s needed.”

With these photographs I seek to interpret the joy, excitement and pleasure of public events, such as, fireworks, light shows, urban street scenes and amusement parks. My primary criteria as a photographer is to make beautiful images, but to make that beauty eye-catching, both dynamic and fascinating.

The union between the motion we live in and still photography which captures that motion seems to be the place where this “dynamic beauty” fuses.

Through its abstraction, these photographs interweave the drama and excitement of the vibrant and colorful public places that we enjoy so much.

Treiber has already reserved the space and is looking for help in order cover the costs of the risk he is taking. As fans of his, we find the risk to be well worth it and hope he reaches his funding goal. Those interested in contributing will have until November 7th to make a pledge.

Peter Treiber, “Hot Saw Grey Mill”

We were pleased to see a well written article by Lou Jacobs in Rangefinder Magazine this month covering the evolution of Peter Treiber’s excellent book “Inside Bethlehem Steel: The Final Quarter Century”. Peter was there working for the company taking some spectacular industrial shots for many years.

Of interest to any photographer planning a self published book, this article is a great road map to creation and promotion of  a photobook.

To control the color, I did my own separations and made my own set of proofs.
The printer’s proofs were based on mine,
and everyone has been pleased with the
outcome. The U.S. print broker I used
paid for my trip to China to oversee printing
that came off with few corrections. I
am distributing the book myself to local
stores, and I was pleased when a distributor
came to me after several successful
signing events at Barnes and Noble.

We own the book … and highly recommend it to anyone wishing to see great photography covering an important piece of our history. His website has more information and also some nice Black and White work.
