As much as I’m enjoying my own photography there are others out there so much more daring than I’m willing to be. Some artists put so much of themselves out on display for criticism or praise, both emotionally and physically, and Peter Breen is one of them.
Peter is an artist and photographer based in London and his work could be seen by some as self indulgent but I disagree. For me it’s an artist using himself as his muse and canvas and exploring all sorts of ideas in various forms of photography. Peter manipulates gender and masculinity, experimenting with makeup, costume, indoor and outdoor photos of himself and his surrounds. His blog, appropriately titled Narcissus Gazed, is a treasure trove of imagery. Stay tuned, Peter has quite an interesting story and I’m hoping to do an interview.
