Peter Calvin

Jefferson Boulevard, Dallas: A Neighborhood's Main Street

This is our first one-person show of the colorful documentary work of Peter Calvin. He has taught on various college campuses and has also run a commercial photography business. His work has been exhibited in the Dallas area on and off for over 30 years.

Before he taught, he shared a photography studio in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas. A primary artery through Oak Cliff, Jefferson Boulevard, wasn’t as interesting back then, he notes. While working on his MFA last year, his project was to photograph different parts of town. He normally photographs buildings, but he observed with Jefferson Boulevard that “the story was the people inside.”

Peter Calvin produces outstanding 12 x 18 inch ink pigment prints. (They are much sharper and more brilliant than they appear on your monitor!) The photographs are also made digitally.
Prints matted to 20 x 24 inches sell for $430.00.
