Architecture of Singapore. An exploration of pattern and symmetry amid the high rise urban architecture of Singapore's HDB blocks, skyscrapers and luxury hotels.
Entirely self-taught, Peter Stewart’s interest in photography started during his early solo backpacking trips around South-East Asia, where the desire to document both the beauty and chaos of its landmarks and sprawling megacities took hold.
Born in Australia, but with half his life spent living in England, he later made the move back to his home city of Perth in his mid-twenties. In 2014, he decided to fully embrace the nomadic lifestyle and sold all of his possessions (minus the cameras naturally), in order to travel almost exclusively full-time. Subsequently moving to Hong Kong as a second home upon which to base his movements around Asia. It was here that Peter cemented his style of hyperreal architecture photography, finding inspiration in the patterns and shapes of the high rise estates strewn all across the city.
Peter's images often focus on themes involving a mass scale, with the underlying desire being to showcase the urban sprawl within Asia's megacities.
Fully embracing a completely digital workflow to produce and manipulate his images, Peter continues to strive for that look he says hinges on the edge of fantasy. The use of vibrant color and deep texture are just some of the hallmarks of his images. Surprisingly, he is also a vocal supporter of traditional film photography. Still opting to work with 35mm film for many of his personal projects and street photography.
