Peter Bennett is a photographic artist and academic. His recent work explores the visualization of urban space in past and future time. Previous projects have examined the book, the sea and the materiality of the photograph, as metaphoric and material repositories of memory. His images often reflect upon the processes of forgetting and erasure in relation to the hastening structures of temporality that have accompanied the rise of modernity. He has an MA and MPhil in Photography from the University of Brighton and is currently a senior lecturer and course leader in BA Photography at the University of West London.
