A reliably good read

Peter Peryer is both one of my favourite photogrpahers, and one of my favourite bloggers. I think he uses his blog as a way of mastering the tyranny of distance - he's based in New Plymouth, one of New Zealand's bigger smaller towns, and home to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. Peter's blog is one the links to the right also, but here it is again:

I'm really interested in the way the blog operates as both a marketing tool and a biography.

Peter has a show opening this week at the McNamara Gallery in Wanganui, one of New Zealand's other bigger smaller towns, although thanks to the tender ministrations of the Wanganui City Council, the local gallery - the Sarjeant - is in not nearly as good a shape as the GBAG.
