objects and places become visionary images when seen through the eye of Peter
Indorf. His images -- urban city scenes, places of tranquility, Yale environs,
and extreme closeups -- are expressions of a personal vision that pull the viewer
into a timeless, peaceful and beautiful world.
Indorf has been an artist all his life. The creation of art objects captivated
him all through school. After
graduation, he traveled the United States on a four-year quest.He studied jewelry making in California and
sketched all over San Francisco and the West Coast. Moving to New Haven in 1972, he founded Peter Indorf Jewelers. There he expressed his creative energies in silver, gold, and platinum, and a variety of diamonds, precious and colored gem stones and pearls.
1980 he branched out into digital graphic design, and was excited by the possibilities
of the new digital
medium. He founded an advertising agency to handle the entire job of promoting his jewelry company.
Mastering new skills of digital photography, digital processing technology, ad design and copy writing led
to developing new techniques to turn photographs into photo-illustrations that resemble traditional media,
each with a painterly quality and brilliant color.
