Peter Liepke

Peter Liepke has been published over the years in numerous magazines and books. He has been featured in Black and White Magazine, View Camera, and most recently, Silver Shotz. Peter has been published in “The Alternative Photographic Processes”, by Christopher James as well as “Photographic Possibilities”, by Robert Hirsch.

Peter Liepke uses 100 year old Graflex 4 x 5 sheet film cameras to capture his imagery. He then uses two 19th century hand applied techniques known as the gum bichromate and the platinum palladium process. He combines both of these time consuming processes together with great patience. His photographs allow the viewer to step inside the picture and enter a place of dream like textures.

“I make my photographs because quite simply I have to. They are a part of me and who I am. In our digital age of rapid fire cameras and gigabytes I believe my methodology and approach projects my contemporary vision forward, while at the same time celebrating the roots of photography in its purest form”.
