New Zealander, b.1941
Suite of five black and white photographs which can be exhibited as a complete body or indivdually. The suite provides a range of subjects including the Kereru on a powerline, a grouping of seven unopened Iceland Poppy flower heads, a group of six plastic bulls, an electrical clip and a suspended tendril.
Bill Manhire was invited to write a poem responding to these images and Peryer feels there is a strong correlation between poetry and photography. He believes his photographs are like poems and relate more closely to poetry than to the visual arts. Peryer makes connections between photography and poetry with both art forms sharing overriding concerns for metaphors, rhythm, rhyme, shape and balance.
