Peter Merts

"I use photography to explore the unknown – or rather my own unknown. Not to discover new things, but to rediscover the old. For I believe that a scene or image affects us to the extent that it reminds us of something we already know — setting off that gasping intake of breath and striking a deep and visceral plangency of reconciliation with some lost knowledge or ineffable truth." (Peter Merts)
