Profile

Peter Brown Leighton

Photographer

In the 1970's, Peter served as dark room assistant to photographer Tom Wright, a National Endowment of the Arts grant recipient and a key figure in the documenting of the rock scene in 1960's Great Britain and in the United States. In the years following, Peter focused his attention on the emergence of digital imaging as a viable process for photographic printmaking, during which time he also served as a Corporate e-Strategist for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishers and operated a fine arts digital imprint, Penny Prints Press, in Austin, Texas. In 2010, he moved with his wife to Tumbaco, Ecuador where he continues to explore ways to interrelate traditional photographic ideas with those of digital origin. He is currently developing a book proposal, consisting of imaginary photographs, titled »Man Lives Through Plutonium Blast«.
