Peter Thompson
From October 1st 1980 to October 25th 1980
Photographies

"Mr. Thompson's current exhibition is a highly individualistic look into the urban landscape. He believes that much can be learned by studying the walls on which, at the same time, insulate while betraying man. These walls speak of man's despair and degradation, his rage, his struggle and even his hope.
He himself believes firmly that under all this confusion, lies order and even beauty, and his purpose is to show those seeking esthetic pleasure in today's urban landscape must attune themselves to their immediate surroundings.
The subject matter of the photographs on display is frail and transitory. What has been captured may at any time, be erased, torn down or weather-beaten."
