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. About his art, Bahouth states, “I utilize stereoscopic photography as a medium to address aesthetic issues raised by the biology of vision and the problem of portraying space. Concepts of vision and perspective have been central to my work with stereoscopic photography, but I am equally motivated by a personal history with stereo images and my interest in their contemporary use.” Bahouth has exhibited extensively in Atlanta and has exhibited at the Pulse Art Fair (New York, NY, 2007), the Flow Art Fair (Miami, FL, 2006), and the Florida State University Contemporary Art Museum (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.
