CV

Peter Michael Wilson
petermichaelwilson@gmail.com

Peter was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He is self-taught in analog photography and its various processes. Photography has been his preferred artistic medium, enabling him to capture the endless subject matter that presents itself on a daily basis, and the infinite possibilities of creating pre-visualized scenes. In his work he blurs the lines between staged situations and real scenarios in order to pursue the idea of the unexplained within the existing method of image-making.
