Peter Braunholz is interested in impressions of reality that appear as being unreal, manipulated or staged, but are actually a part of our surroundings. Within these impressions he searches for the immaterial quality of objects and spaces, their very essence.
Peter's work has received numerous international awards (IPA, Lumiere, LensCulture, Neutral Density, Arte Laguna, Felix Schoeller a.m.o.), and has been shown in many exhibitions in museums, galleries, art spaces and on art fairs around the world along with works of Thomas Demand, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Vik Muniz, Candida Höfer, Gao Brothers, Shen Shaomin, Lynn Silverman, Elisabeth Brockmann and other renowned artists. Recently his work was shown at the Arsenale of Venice, Italy, Cultural History Museum Osnabruck and Museum Sinclair-Haus Bad Homburg, Germany.
Peter is represented with his work in numerous collections in Europe and the United States, f. e. Mezzanin Collection Liechtenstein, Huantie Times Art Museum Beijing (CN), Huaxia Art Museum Zhengzhou (CN), Italian Cultural Association MoCA (IT), Kali+Salz Aktiengesellschaft Art Collection (DE), Scimus Consulting GmbH Art Collection (DE).
In 2017 Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg Berlin published a monograph book titled "Photographic Realities" about his work, containing an essay by former Art Cologne director Gérard A. Goodrow.
