he has worked again primarily as a landscape photographer, exploring particularly the principles of black-and-white photography. Regardless of the type of picture, the authenticity of work is key to Peter Mathis. His primary design elements are light and structure. Light reflected by the object should be optimized so that it serves the overall structure and composition of the image. A picture therefore is not a simple reproduction of a predetermined motif, but instead is developed with the camera while on site. He refuses any simulation of artificial light moods or movements on the computer that are not reproducible in a physical sense. He is only interested in “true” nature, that which we can actually experience, instead of computer generated artifices.
