Launched in 2000, Architectural Digest Mexico has come to boast a readership of almost 250,000 and is described as “an authority in architecture, decoration and interior design.”
Therefore, it comes as no surprise to find luxury fine art photographer, Peter Lik, honored in a special section of their June 2015 edition – which focuses on international contemporary photographers, highly renowned for epic works of the beautiful world around us.
Under the heading, Priceless Moments, writer Karine Monie focuses on 10 leaders in the photography industry who have made international waves with their groundbreaking images. Peter, who has been capturing award-winning scenes for over 30 years, is perfectly placed in this piece – aptly described as someone who has mastered “the art of photographing landscapes and cityscapes.”
Accompanied by Peter’s fiery vision, Forbidden Ember – taken at Hawaii’s legendary volcano, Kilauea – Monie’s article briefly explores the Artist’s life, from receiving his first camera as a child in Australia to ultimately achieving success with 14 exclusive galleries around the United States. Also highlighted in the article, is Peter’s life-changing discovery of the panoramic format camera, his “sublime” project Spirit of America, and of course, the record-breaking $6.5 million sale of Phantom.
When asked how it feels to be featured in such a prominent publication, Peter replied: “Architectural Digest is one of the most well-known names in the world of interior design. To be recognized by such an iconic powerhouse is a true honor.”
