Peter Berra is a photographer, a teacher and a parent and lives in Montreal, Canada.
His recent work, “Interior Spaces,” currently deals with memory, displacement, and connection and how these concepts manifest in personal spaces, such as one's home. The photos are a gateway to spaces situated around quiet rooms that seemingly contain traces of memories waiting to be found.
Driven to document common and unique human experiences, Berra’s work often carries a sense of lyricism that often straddles between fiction and non-fiction. Centring on the documentation of material objects and communal and private spaces, we have grown accustomed. His work gives importance and validity to the ordinary by imbuing present-day objects and situations with an arbitrary historical context.
