«Infinity Tree», by Peter Lik
LIK Galleries across the country are set to unveil Peter's Newest Masterwork on Saturday, April 4
Peter Lik began capturing the wonders of nature as a young boy in his native Australia and never stopped. In 1984, Lik came to the U.S. and discovered his passion for panoramic photography. One of Lik’s most notable projects, «Spirit of America», is a 50-state landscape exploration of perilous deserts, ethereal mountain peaks, lush fields and glimmering cityscapes.
Peter Lik’s love for America and its landscapes led him to become a naturalized citizen in 2013. Over the years, Lik’s career has been marked with award wins as a Master Photographer from both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
He has also been awarded fellowships from the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS). In 2011, Peter jumped into mainstream culture by starring in the NBC-produced TV series, «From the Edge with Peter Lik«.
Lik has 15 LIK Galleries across the United States and his masterworks «Ghost» and «Inner Peace» have been included in exhibitions of Nature’s Best Photography at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. In 2015, Peter was honored at PPA’s Imaging USA with a Lifetime Achievement Award. He is one of only 13 recipients in history to receive this honor.
Peter Lik exquisitely captures the perfect autumn day in his latest photograph, «Infinity Tree» . The Master Photographer will reveal his latest work on Saturday, April 4 at his 15 LIK Galleries nationwide.
Lik spent ten days with Mother Nature before this scene presented itself. The varying temperatures and rainfall allowed the tree to reveal its radiant colors in the most stunning way. «On this particular afternoon, I knew exactly where to be and I waited for the perfect moment», said Peter Lik. «The composition was critical, as the trunk lines changed with every move. As I pressed the shutter, total serenity surrounded me and I knew I had the shot».
