Peter Lik Introduces Photography Book, America

A Breathtaking Tribute to the Artist’s Home Away from Home

Little did he know it, but in 1984, Peter’s life was about to drastically change forever. It was the year he first encountered the vast, raw beauty of the United States, a landscape he had long-dreamt of exploring while growing up amongst the rugged outdoors of Australia. Peter was instantly thunderstruck by the country’s range of natural scenery, and the profound visual transformations that occur with the changing of every season. Now, after 30 years of capturing both the nation’s natural aesthetics, and its innovative collection of awe-inspiring, manmade structures, Peter releases his stunning tribute: America

In the three decades since Peter’s initial trip to the U.S. – where he now happily resides as a citizen – the Artist has successfully trekked across all 50 states (multiple times), expertly capturing the country’s most beautiful locations. From the fall foliage of the Northeast, to the blue waters of the Pacific coast and beyond, Peter has taken countless frames – many of which have never before been seen outside the Artist’s studio. “It was once again time to give testament to the endless beauty of America,” Peter remarked, “And reveal so many of my unsung images that I couldn’t wait to share with the world.”

Now available online at, this visual journey through over 160 images can either be acquired individually or as part of the Peter Lik Library Collection. Featuring screen-printed, fabric spines, Stora Enso Fine Art Paper, and foil-debossed covers, no stone was left unturned to make America a fine art photography book worthy of the most discerning of collectors: “I absolutely had to put out a carefully crafted work that really showed my tremendous appreciation for all the wonderful gifts The States have brought me,” Peter added. “It is truly a land of opportunity that I am honored to call my home.”
