Olana’s Dynamic Landscape – Photographs by Peter Aaron
Peter Aaron is a pioneer in combining cinematic style with architectural photography techniques. Now working with digital capture, his well-composed, trademark images are always lively and luminous. He studied organic chemistry at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University, and received a BA in physics from Bard College and an MFA from the New York University Institute of Film and Television. He worked as a film cameraman before deciding to concentrate on architectural photography which has been his specialty for over 35 years. Peter’s experience as Ezra Stoller’s assistant was transformational. After two years of apprenticeship he adapted his mentor’s techniques, and began integrating dramatic camera angles with theatrical lighting. He is a contributing photographer with Architectural Digest and his images also frequently appear in other books and magazines. Recently Aaron has spoken about his work at the Architectural League in New York, at the Soho Apple store and to the ASMP photographers architectural photography group.
