Peggi Pugh - Gottlieb
I photograph the many nuances I see in people. Sometimes my camera provides me with invisibility, giving me access to people and situations I would not otherwise find. Other times I prefer to listen to my subjects because they are quite revealing. I'm interested in the one yielding moment where a subject may live forever -- that click.
My recent studies illustrate my approach: for the Fulton Fish Market I was invisible, taking photographs in the middle of the madness. With the NYC Bikers, I was visible, asking for permission to shoot. In 2009, I spent time at a number of art fairs, inspired to photograph by partially capturing the art, the artist and the public areas into angles exposing and reflecting the instability of our time.
