Peter Misfeldt
Born 1966 in Georgetown, British Guiana. Lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.
In 2004 I picked up a digital camera in order to photograph my paintings, but little did I know it was going to change my approach to making art. I had previously played around with polaroids, SX-70 and the like, and upon getting the digital camera I quickly began to explore the possibilities outside my studio and slowly but steady the camera replaced the brush and pixels and prints replaced the paint and canvas. Now many camera bodies later I'm entirely devoted to photography and travels extensively in order to pursue my visions of the world. Much of my time is spent in the American Southwest where I hike and backpack into the remote and desolate backcountry with just the essentials and my camera.
