Warren Street by Peter Spear

by Denis on January 30, 2012

Photographer Peter Spear chronicles life, as he sees it, in his hometown of Hudson in New York state. Commenting on Spear’s work, Andrew Wagner said

“Peter has made a habit of lugging his various cameras around with him almost constantly and in doing so has managed to capture some fantastic, beautiful, simple moments in this tough little town. Peter’s photos are not necessarily about capturing the traditionally picturesque or scenic (though he has certainly done that as well) but rather about allowing the camera to tell a story in a remarkable manner by simply keeping your eyes open and waiting for those moments to present themselves.”

In a recent interview, when asked “What do you look for when you go out to take pictures?”, Spear’s answer complemented Wagner’s assessment:

“I think at their best, photos can be like secrets – something that catches my eye may not catch someone elses eye. I suppose, when I walk around Hudson with a camera, I am looking for light and I am looking to be surprised. It’s a great excuse to try and really be open to the place where I am.”

Spear recently published his first photography book, The Friendly City, which can browsed and purchased on the Blurb website.
