Celebrated artist Peter Arnold captures the spirit of the old west in this stunning piece of large format photography that showcases the uniqueness of the American desert. The hazy sun beats down on to the sands of the historic western trail, whilst the mountainous rock formations stand as relics of time passed. The landscape casts odd shadows and the wind whips lines through the sand, appearing at times like an alien planet.
Artist Peter Arnold
Peter Arnold is one of the world's most celebrated fine art photographers and acclaimed modern painter.
It was his striking flower photographs that gave him international fame, and his series of best selling coffee table books of beautiful flower studies have become classics. These include 'Tulips', which boasts a foreword by Sir Elton John, and is presented by Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, to her guests; and 'Orchids' and 'Bulbs in Bloom'.
But as well as flowers, Peter photographs a diverse range of subjects and he is currently working on book projects of tropical seascapes and another on the male nude.
Being a painter as well as a photographer, Peter has developed a uniquely sensitive style. His strong graphic influence and technical mastery make his work immediately recognisable. Peter says that his painting style has influenced his photography, and his photography has helped him 'paint with light'.
Peter has exhibited with both Kodak and Ilford, and has been presented with the coveted gold award by Graphis in New York for his fine art photography. His client list reads like a Who's Who, and includes institutions, hotel groups, music and film celebrities, and even Royalty. Peter has exhibited at many of London's top galleries, and his work hangs in public and corporate collections throughout the world.
