Christian Peterson, Over Thirty Years of Great Work at the MIA

Posted Jul 29, 2011

 

Check out this nice article by Mary Abbe on Christian Peterson. We will miss Christian, but know that he will be a frequent visitor to the MIA’s Photography Study Room. He will also be on red alert when we can’t find prints. He created and maintained the collection for over thirty years, and knows where everything is. Don’t miss Christian’s last exhibition at the MIA, Wide-Eyed: Panoramic Photographs, which opens on September 15th.
