Peter Hauser, born in Glarus (Switzerland), attended Lucerne Art School (HGKL), the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KABK) in The Hague (NL) and the Zurich School for the Arts (ZHdK) from where he graduated in 2010. His body of work mainly centers around the medium of photography, which, for him, represents a field where he can experiment, discover and shape the intangible to create a visual storyline. Beside various exhibitions in his home country and abroad, he was nominated for the “Swiss Federal Design Awards” twice (2012 & 2016). His first monograph “Hello, I am not from here” was awarded “The Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2016”.
In 2020 he was a winner of the “City of Zurich art grant“ with his project ANGST. Peter is currently living in Zurich, Switzerland.
