“The world is filled with curious and remarkable things, but also with ordinary things. In my photography, I aim to capture the remarkable and ordinary as they intersect. It is in these intersections, in these contrasts, that I stop and pay attention to the world’s beauty. ‘Intersections’ explores this idea. I tried to frame these remarkable and ordinary things in such a way that the observer feels slightly disoriented since I find that I am more open to stopping and seeing the world’s beauty when I see the world in unfamiliar terms. Often, it is when disoriented that I am oriented toward the beautiful.” –Peter Witte, 2014
