Biography

Peter Bahouth works with stereoscopic 3-dimensional photography, a process that was developed in the 1830’s. Bahouth designs his own viewers, often incorporating sculpture, sound or signage as an invitation to look; inviting viewers to observe the photograph outside the present context.  Similar to looking through a hole in a fence, a peek behind the surface requires active participation of the viewer. Bahouth has exhibited extensively in Atlanta and has exhibited at the Pulse Art Fair in New York in 2007; the Flow Art Fair in Miami, FL in 2006 and the Florida State University Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa, FL alongside Chuck Close and William Kentridge. His exhibition Post No Bills was the 2004 Public Art Project for Atlanta Celebrates Photography, consisting of 30 stereoscopic viewers placed in pedestrian areas of Midtown and Decatur. Bahouth is on the boards of Art Papers, the Hambidge Center and Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Formerly, the Executive Director of Greenpeace USA and the Turner Foundation, Bahouth is currently the Executive Director of U.S. Climate Action Network.
