Peter Welch is a New York City based multidisciplinary artist. His fine art photographic work has been exhibited in various venues throughout world. These images often explore the American landscape in an attempt to find a sense of place in an ever changing, commercially oriented environment. Other themes touched upon are the harmonious relationship between life and death, the unpredictable nature of human experience and the random nature of the artist's own life. His work was recognized by the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 International Photography Awards, as well as the 2006 Palm Springs Photo Festival. He is currently editing two monographs- Absence: American Photographs and Scrap Mental: New York Photographs 2001 - 2011.

As a filmmaker Peter directed the feature film Three Long Years, which was picked up for worldwide VOD distribution by Zurich based Diva Releasing and is now available on itunes (Netflix in the near future). He also codirected the experimental film The Piles Project, which features Art World superstars Mark Kostabi and Taylor Mead. Recently he completed directing the experimental film Hard-Drive, and is producing Hamilton Harris's documentary debut film The Kids featuring Chloe Sevigny, Jason Lee and Rosario Dawson.
