Peter Cochrane (MFA ’19), an alumnus of the photography and film program, debuts his latest body of work, “The Wild Beasts,” at Page Bond Gallery on June 6. The solo exhibition, which will hold its opening reception at 6pm, will be on view through July 3.
Cochrane’s still life photos render natural, symbolic imagery as personal messages directed at queer members of his community. Utilizing a 19th-century large format view camera to capture both flowers and man-made objects, he repurposes the tools of colonialists and ethnographers to frame his portraits with the history of trauma and recovery.
Cochrane has exhibited work around the world, and been featured in major arts publications such as Hyperallergic and BOMB.
