Artist Peter Cochrane

Peter Cochrane

Richmond, VA, USA


American, b. 1987   —   Peter Cochrane is a studio-based, still life photographer and site-specific installation artist. He uses photography for its unique, flattening nature, to find new information and forms when translating three dimensions into two. These still images, along with architectural installations, provide an opportunity to slowly discover new stories woven together through autobiography, archaeology, and science fiction. Each project begins with extensive materials research to find the best medium for the idea—from the historical stories that embody every item in view to the narrative effects of light, color, and shadow—in order to present a conceptual and emotionally resonant experience. His work has appeared in BOMB, Headmaster, The San Francisco Chronicle, Vast Magazine, Hyperallergic, Brink, Artslant, the MoCP lecture series, the de Young Museum, the Vermont Center for Photography, the Tokyo International Photo Awards, and others. He is a recipient of the Snider Prize and has been a finalist for several awards including the Hopper Prize, the Fine Art Photography Award, the Exposure Award, and the Kodak Photo Film Award. He has held several solo exhibitions nationally, and his work is in public and private collections including the Museum of Contemporary Photography. He is currently a lecturer in the Photography and Film department at Virginia Commonwealth University.
