Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision presents a documentary profile of Peter Peryer - 30 mins.
Screening on TV-Freeview CH200, the film discusses Peryer’s then current project in which he attempts to get a portrait of a bull, and his new work with Macano. Peryer describes his work as autobiographical: “My photographs are self-portraits. The photographs are somehow related to my past. I don’t know why or how.”
Peryer shows us the process involved in taking photographs – from their initial conception to sorting through the proofs. He also talks about the evolution of his work from moody and angst-ridden in the 1970s to clinical and constructivist in the 1980s. Director Greg Stitt; Producer Trevor Haysom and; Camera Leon Narbey.
