Pete Turner, In Memoriam 1934-2017

Pete passed away a couple of days ago at the age of 83. His pioneering experimental imagery will surely be missed.

    Wow, Keith. I want to photograph like him. Sorry to read this.

    • Pete was one of the first photographers to be represented by the Image Bank photo agency. He has one of the first three contracts. I was an editor there for a few years. Pete just submitted his work straight through into distribution. No one edited his work!

    What a bummer. Pete did color in a way that even today no one has matched.
    Great man, great heart, good night Pete. 😓

    When I was a student at RIT I became aware of Pete Turner, he had a tremendous influence on the way I began to shoot…..he will be sorely missed.
