Lusztyk’s aerial views and uncanny angles transform otherwise functional, banal constructions into photographic spaces for aesthetic meditation, and long, linear shadows double the sensuality of concrete curvatures. The static symmetry of the interchange poetically contrasts its witness to perpetual movement, while conspicuous green space is carved out in perfect geometry so that the organic and the inanimate mathematically coexist.
For Lusztyk, these images reveal, with new perspective, a ubiquitous presence that nonetheless remains largely invisible. His vision of capturing the beauty of highway interchanges infuses the familiar with something new—it is the everyday at remove, one that allows a privileged glimpse of the veins and arteries of both cities and the sinews of concrete that connect them.
Many clients including Apple, Audi, KPMG, American Express and National Geographic have licensed images from Lusztyk’s Interchanges series.
Peter Andrew Lusztyk is a commercial and fine art photographer living in Toronto, Canada. When he is not shooting he can be found teaching photography to upper level students at the University of Toronto.
Lusztyk’s work has been exhibited in Europe, North America and China.
Lusztyk is the recipient of numerous awards including AACE Photographer of the Year 2013; Graphis Photography Award Gold 2013, Silver 2017; International Photography Awards 1st Place Winner 2012; PX3 Paris Photo Awards 1st Place Winner 2012; Communication Arts Photo Annual 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015; Applied Arts Photo Annual 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017; Magenta Foundation Emerging Photographer Award 2012 and 2016.
