In these images, photographer Peter Schwartz leaves the viewer with a sense of having just turned the corner onto a vista in which, moments earlier, something extraordinary happened. What displacement of mass caused the water’s rippling, rainbow sheen? Where did that array of symmetry and structure come from, obviously constructed, but unanchored to any comfortable purpose? Did something just scamper or bound up that ladder to the barn’s spreading loft above? Wonder and dread are a breath apart.

After years of writing and painting, Peter Schwartz (“The Breath Between Wonder & Dread: Seven Photographs”) has moved to another medium: photography. In the past his work has been featured in Existere, Failbetter, Hobart, International Poetry Review, Red Wheelbarrow, Reed, and Willard & Maple.
