Royse Contemporary to debut Peter Brian Klein's "Reverence of Place & Time"
By: Royse Contemporary
The eroded volcanic remains of the San Francisco Peaks mark the highest point of elevation in Arizona, a sacred sight revered by Native Americans. As a lifelong native Klein wanted to capture the affinity he has for Northern Arizona, while expressing his reverence for the indigenous people and the cultural significance that it represents. "Evolving from the ashes of ancient volcanic devastation, this place represents something quite different to me than it does to the Hopi of Black Mesa, we are equally in awe of the San Francisco Peaks and the landscapes they loom over." In his latest collection, he has captured breathtaking images of Lockett Meadow during the Summer solstice, as an expression of time and gratitude for the solace he found in their shadows. "We all must all work together to protect this majestic natural wonder that we have come to admire," declares Klein.
Klein was born, raised and educated in Phoenix, Arizona, falling in love with photography at a young age. His life long journey of learning and exploring the photographic process began with an initial education using film and darkroom printing. Klein feels that art is a communicative device that should convey, and even at times, create emotion.
