Peter Westerhof @peterwesterhof.architectuur

 

Peter Westerhof (1963) discovered architectural photography in 2010.

 

He has been photographing since childhood, but in 2010 he began a series of photography courses at the SKVR in Las Palmas, Rotterdam.

Since then, he has focused on a specific genre: architectural photography.

He sold photographs to architecture firms (e.g. DP6 architecture studio, Maas architects) and architecture-related companies (e.g. Euramax Coated Products, Amicon Fabrication, Manifold Design). Prints of his work have been sold to private individuals.

 

From 1989 to 2000 he worked at Utrecht University as a study advisor, policy officer, department director and secretary of project economics. In 2000 he switched to Notion pictures & net. He studied sociology and history.

In 2019 he published his first book on architecture: Buiten Westen, het nieuwe bouwen in de stedendriehoek.

 

Artist Statement:
 

Architectural photography is not only the beautiful depiction of a building but also the representation of more abstract lines and color. Three dimensions of a building become two dimensions in the photograph. Parts of buildings thus become new works of art, sometimes they almost look like photographs of sculptures.
