“Ethereal Luminescence” is a series of abstract, expressionistic photographs that was started in 2012 at a light show and continued at fireworks shows, urban street scenes and amusement parks. It was born out of an effort to express the joy and excitement experienced by viewers and participants at these events. The symphonic explosion of color, light and motion was the result of Peter not accepting the first representative mages that he made. In the final presentation, Peter is not concerned with place or subject, but with the final image to be considered as the subject.
