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.
Pairing photography and poetry, these pictures are filled with free association, spirited attitudes, and emblematic references—each of these theatrical, archetypal characters leaps off the frame!
Italian photographerteamed up with American calligrapher Monica Dengo to create a meditative series that explores written language and human identity.
"Sometimes photography without context is enough — sometimes the lack of context gives depth to the picture, a resonance, gives us space to examine the banality of the subject and its inherent beauty."
