Peter Garmusch, who works as the assistant of international photographers
and travels around the world, has collected his own impressions from abroad
and realized them in photographic series such as “Wheelbarrows”,
“Shoot a load” and “Turbulent Gold”.
His main interests are photographic sculptures with different and various compositions and background, telling interesting stories, but leaving it up to the spectator to interpret and understand his ideas and thoughts. Surreal, very intense situations with social-critical approach are his strong point.
