    For more than 9 years, Peter Steinhauer called Hong Kong home. While many characterize the city as being  impossibly  fast-paced,  money-oriented  and  concrete-smothered,  Steinhauer’s  passion  compels  him  to  visualize  scenes  of  peacefulness  and  the  underlying  beauty of    urban  density.  Walking  through  both  narrow  alleyways  and  open  airs  of  the  city,  he  looks  for  graphic  elements  within  natural  landscape,  man-made  structures  as  well  as  the organized  chaos  that  make  up  our  urban  architecture. Hong  Kong  – Surface Unseen is a body of photographic work that exposes to us the many dimensions of Hong Kong that are within our sight, yet often go unnoticed and unseen.

    Steinhauer’s previous experiences of taking black and white photographs in Vietnam, Bali and Burma, places that are considered mystic and spiritual, have enabled him to see Hong Kong in a different way.

    Steinhauer lived in Asia for 20 years. His works have been exhibited extensively in Asia, Europe and the USA, and have been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburg, USA),  Gibson  Dunn  Law  Firm  (Hong  Kong,  China),  Kirkland  Ellis  Law  Firm  (Hong  Kong,  China),  Barclays  Asia  (Singapore),  Fidelity  Worldwide  Investments  (Singapore),  SG  Global  Development  Firm  (Singapore),  theMeridian  International  Centre  in  Washington  D.C.  (USA),  and  numerous  embassies  worldwide,  to  name  a  few.

    With   the   Hong   Kong   Surface   Unseen   series,   Steinhauer   has   received   the   IPA   International   Photography  Awards  in  2009.  In  2014,  he  won sevenLucie  International  Photography  Awards  for  his Cocoons, Asian Markets and Singapore Number Blocks series. He was also  the  winner  of  the PDN  Annual  Photographic  Award  of  Excellence  (2012),  theBlack  and  White  Spider  Award  of  Excellence  (2011,  2012  and 2013), and the PX3 Paris Photography Awards (2009). Steinhauer is currently based with his family in San Francisco, USA.
