Peter Holliday is a photographer from Glasgow, currently in his graduate year studying BA (Hons) Communication Design at Glasgow School of Art. We take a look at his latest project 'Places of Interest'.
"The primary focus of my current work lies in the interrelations between man and the landscape. My inspiration is mostly drawn from groups such as the New Topographics movement, as well as other contemporary photographers such as Joel Sternfeld, Nadav Kander and Martin Parr. I am interested in investigating the ways in which humans engage with and alter the physical world around them, as well as exploring the idea of landscape as narrative - a theatre where events can take place."
"My short series, Places of Interest, made during the summer of 2014 using a medium format negative film camera, documents the relationship between the modern day traveller and the environmentally sensitive tourist landscapes of Iceland."
