Peter Peryer: The Art of Seeing

Kiwi documentarian Shirley Horrocks surveys the life and career of one of New Zealand’s most important photographers.

"What begins as a gentle, engaging look at the artist’s life becomes a photography masterclass in style, technique and his broad career subjects of nature, people and place ... The access to Peryer at his home in Taranaki before his death in November 2018 make this the most definitive documentary that will ever be produced on the artist. Clips from a 1994 TV doco add further depth to the richly told stories, but it is Horrocks’ one-on-one time with Peryer amongst his vibrant gallery of work that beautifully frames the man and the artist."
