- Current Location: Chicago
Peter Hoffman is a Chicago based photographer who splits his time between working on portrait and feature photography commissions and creating personal projects. His work branches into topics that deal with sustainability, sociology and technology. His body of work entitled Fox-River Derivatives – a conceptually driven environmental statement motivated by the 2010 Deep Horizon Oil Spill has recently been shown at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago, and online in Time.com, Fast.co Design, The Huffington Post, PDN, Phaidon and other arts focused outlets. Most recently his personal work brought him to Christchurch, New Zealand to work on a photographic project exploring the psychology of living under the duress of constant earthquake activity. It was a return to the country where he started photography in earnest, photographing surf adventures with friends in college. His editorial clients include The New York Times, The Guardian: Weekend Magazine, The Times of London, Bloomberg Businessweek, Chicago Magazine, Nylong Guys, Monocle, The Wall St. Journal and others.
