Peter Chow studied Architecture and Photography at MIT. He received a Master of Architecture degree and studied for four year at the MIT Photo Lab. Peter was fortunate to be able to study with Minor White before his passing in 1975. The two disciplines, while very different in medium, shared many common aesthetic- shapes, light and shadow, symmetry, patterns, movement,- all held together by a central idea or point of view.
Peter retired from architecture after running his own practice for 32 years. While he continues to photograph during those years, it was a long period of very low activity. Since the summer of 2016 he has been focusing on his photography and learning about the digital world. He found the digital world offers many more opportunities to explore ideas that the analog world was unable to provide. This has advanced his thinking about what is possible and what he photographs can be.
