Peter McLennan

My interest in photography began as a child when my family and I would embark on long road trips across North America. I would spend most of my time looking out at the horizon wondering what was beyond or when the mountains would appear. It was during one such trip to Inuvik in the Canadian north that I began to experiment with my father’s Canon A1 camera. I have been shooting ever since.
With my photos I attempt to combine my love of art history, photography, aesthetics and carpentry to create large atmospheric landscapes that evoke modern interpretations of the sublime, a term often associated with the romantic period to describe the spiritual relationship between nature, time and the human soul.
While I have never completed a formal photography program, I have taken several courses at different institutions that provided me with the necessary basics to hone my skills. Essential to the substance of my work was my time spent completing a double major in Art History and Religion at the University of Toronto.
I have been working professionally as a photographer and printer since 2008. Since then I have sold my work to private and corporate collectors across Canada, the US and Europe.
