Temporarily residing in Macon, Georgia, Peter Stitt is a photographer who has been exhibited nationally and internationally, from Portland, OR, to Venice, Italy. A graduate of Northeastern University, he has studied and honed his craft through teaching, commercial assisting, and gallery management.
Working currently as a full-time artist, Stitt produces images that reflect on the social landscape and the way in which it shapes our experiences, past and present. With influences from street photography and the New Topographics movement, his photography speaks to a sense of place, time, and familiarity of everyday environments and the landscapes they create.
While currently living in a place that I knew would only be temporary, I’ve taken time to treat it almost like my own personal artists residency. The work I have been creating, under the working title “Postcards from the Neighborhood”, has been an exploration of the surrounding landscape, all within walking distance of my apartment. The images are dispatches to an outside world, reflections of where I am, the structures within, and how their current existence creates the spaces and forms that make up the landscape and experience of being immersed in them.
