Since 1993, Peter has been documenting the many facets of Asian culture. His Cocoon series is somewhat an artistic departure from his previous works as this project is predominately photographed and printed in colour.
Upon Peter’s first visit to Hong Kong in January of 1994, he arrived at the old Kai Tak International Airport, on exiting via taxi he noticed a very large structure that was surrounded in yellow material on the bottom half and the top half was encapsulated in bamboo. He was amazed by the monumental size of this structure and not surprisingly made easy comparisons to the environmental Bulgarian artist Christo and his wife Jean Claude and wondered if perhaps they were exhibiting in Hong Kong and wrapping a building. He saw many more on the way to Hong Kong Island and then quickly realised that this was a form of renovation on old and new buildings. These large wrapped buildings were particularly striking with the backdrop of the dense urban confides of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
