FINE ART PHOTOgraphy by peter mendelson
Growing up a suburban kid on the North Shore of Long Island in the 1970s, my two great escapes were New York City, and the Long Island shoreline from Jones Beach to Montauk. While radically different, these environments expanded my horizons, literally and figuratively, and have had a psychological pull on me that lasts to this day.
When my interest in photography bloomed in my 30s and 40s, I felt that same impulse to escape to the shore and the city, using light, color and form to (re)capture the psychological power of these spaces in photographs.
My subject matter are mostly cultural artifacts, man-made structures and architectural forms, composed in the viewfinder in a deceptively straightforward manner that draws the viewer into my world.
Wherever I am, the underlying compulsion is the same - to “elevate the ordinary" and share my way of seeing with others so that they, too, can feel the psychological pull of a place and reimagine the world for themselves..
I hope that you enjoy my work.
