Elections Video Blog

Published by


For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by stories. Through much of my life, I satisfied this interest with the study of history. The topics of war, uprising, social movements and sexuality defined my course of historical study and generated a deep curiosity in the modern aspects of these issues. While the past enthralls me, my interest in creating modern primary documents ultimately won out. Since 2005, I have worked to document the individual consequences of war, poverty and social unrest. Through a combination of photography, text, and audio recordings, I hope to illustrate broader issues through individual stories. I aim to create images and material that demand consideration for the lives of those depicted. I believe that intimate, sensitive photographs leave indelible marks on the conscience and actively oppose the sterilization of human suffering.

  1. Peter, I am a friend of Charlie Gaynor, he sent me your blog site and I have been following your postings daily.

    I have missed updates and am concerned about your safety and the safety of your friends and co-workers.

    Thank you for educating me and my family and friends, your work is now a daily discussion topic.

  2. Nice report Pete.
    I really like that you highlight the positive aspects of the election process.
    It is unrealistic to expect a smooth election in a country that has been so
    We have problems here and we have been voting for decades and have not
    been war torn at home!
