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.

Curator for the KunstHausWien, Vienna, Austria
Peter Garmusch was one of three photographers from Austria chosen to represent Austria in 2008 at the nightlong projection of photographs from 27 European countries at the Rencontres Festival in Arles. Marina Yolbulur-Nissim served as curator for the selections from Austria.
"In all their simplicity, these items are the last resort of identity, the last permanent reminder that these people ever existed." A stark but powerful tribute to the victims of the Bosnian War.
By photographing carefully constructed models, which break the rules of perspective, these images aim to disrupt photography's ingrained conventions of representation and reality.
