Peter Mathis has been working as a photographer since 1986. His professional work focuses particularly upon outdoor and sports photography. His international work has taken him to the most different places around the world.

Since 2009 he has become again more immersed in landscape photography and producing large format works. By concentrating on black and white photography he strives to reveal its inner laws and uncover the entire gamut of expression in his images.

His essential design elements are light and structure. Light reflected by the object be optimized so that it serves the overall structure and composition of the image. A picture therefore is not a simple reproduction of a predetermined motif, but instead is developed with the camera while on site.

Since 2012 his exhibition presence is gaining more and more momentum. Both in solo and group shows, his photographs have been shown in Vienna, Budapest, Moscow, Prague, Berlin, Paris, Zurich or Basle. Since 2014 his exhibition in Schwarzenberg has established itself as a fixed point in the Schubertiade program offer.
