Biographic information

Per Volquartz started his career in the visual arts
after graduating from Art Center College of Design in 1971.

At first he worked as a graphic designer and illustrator.
Soon however, he discovered large format photography,
which later proved to be his main direction as a visual artist.

In Yosemite National Park, in the summer of 1976
Per Volquartz met Ansel Adams and Morley Baer, who together
with the painter, Lorser Feitelsohn were to inspire him, forming his unique
background in creative photography.
(During the years at Art Center in Los Angeles Per Volquartz had studied
under Lorser Feitelsohn, the master of modern American hard edge painting.)

This was to become a turning point in his photographic career.
During the next decade and a half he accepted a variety
of commercial assignments from many fortune 500 companies.
He became known for his unique photographic point of view,
and as a master printer.

These images are the results of a commercial assignment in industrial photography.
