Next up in our series of contemporary photographers offering their own insight on New Topographics is Los Angeles-based artist Peter Holzhauer. Raised in Maine before relocating to Los Angeles, Peter explores the metropolis with an eye toward recording its inhabitants’ more ambiguous claims on the local terrain. Photographing the city’s built environment he describes a place of laconic vigor, flux, and occasional absurdity. Peter will be giving a tour of New Topographics this Sunday; here’s a peek at some of the topics he might explore.
