On The Cover

George Peer is a photographer who lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He uses a pinhole camera in which there is no mechanical shutter, no lens, and no viewfinder, but only an empty enclosure with a pin-sized hole through which light enters. With prolonged exposure, the negatives can be transferred directly onto the paper, making the photograph a true imprint of the landscape it expresses. “In its bare-bones simplicity,” writes Peer, “this medium supports my uniting the technology of photography with the mystery of the unseen.” His most current work is featured with Sid Gershgoren’s sayings in Through the Sky in the Lake, published by Milkweed Editions.
