Pete Turner, Master Of Color Photography

Pete Turner (1934 – 2017) was an American photographer who is best known as one of the first masters of color photography. PDN Gallery voted him as one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time and in 1981 the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) awarded him its Outstanding Achievement in Photography honor.
A pioneer of color photography, Pete Turner’s career began during the infancy of color photography. Unlike many contemporaries, Turner embraced color, seizing opportunities that allowed him to master the process and to create the imagery he felt compelled to make.
Turner achieves his vision by combining the technical tools of photography with a perceptive eye for compositional color. Learning to manipulate hue and saturation early in his career, Turner created photographs that looked unlike anything previously seen, such as Giraffe. Over the years, he has continued to push the medium of photography by employing an impeccable sense of timing and a long-running fascination with geometry and surrealism.
