Peter Steinhauer’s photographs are both works of silence and works full of life. Since 1993 he has been documenting the many facets of Asian cultures. Steinhauer focuses on documenting portraits, natural landscape, seascapes, urban cityscapes and man made structure from different countries throughout Asia. His finely crafted black and white prints are shown and exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and are widely collected throughout the United States, Asia and Europe. He is also a recipient of numerous international photography awards. In 2009 he was awarded in numerous categories in the prestigious IPA and PX3 Paris Annual Photography Awards. In 2004 he was awarded with a Ford Foundation Grant for his work from Vietnam and in 2005, the United States Embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam chose to exhibit Steinhauer’s photographs as part of the Ten Year Anniversary Celebration of diplomatic relations between the United States and Vietnam, which were exhibited at both the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City Fine Art Museums.
