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”.

Surreal, very intense situations with social-critical approach are his strong point.
