Collection: Laurie Beck Peterson

Laurie Beck Peterson (Philadelphia, PA, USA) is an alternative process photographer primarily working in gum bichromate, cyanotype and platinum palladium. Her work explores impermanence and the growth and decay of the natural world, as a result of invasive species or through natural life cycles. Laurie’s current work focuses on cyanotypes on ash wood stumps and she has recently started using the sustainable plant-based processes.

Most of her images are film based, using a holga or pinhole camera. Her cyanotypes on tree stumps and work in sustainable plant-based processes, are ephemeral which provides the viewer with an experience that can be transient. Her gum bichromate and platinum palladium prints on paper are archival. Laurie teaches alternative process photography at Tyler School of Art + Architecture. It is there that she started a collaborative project between photo and architecture students to build a giant walk-in camera obscura on wheels. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally. Two bodies of work were awarded at the 15th Annual Julia Margaret Cameron Awards on view in 2021 at FotoNostrum in Barcelona.
