Collection Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth. Purchased with funds donated by the TSB Community Trust to the Govett-Brewster Foundation, 2005.

Peter Peryer’s photographs are characterised by their focus on everyday and domestic subject matter and boldness of isolated form, often recalling moments in photographic history. Peryer’s photographs contain elements that relate to his past and are frequently portraits of people; but just as often they can be biographical portraits of New Zealand. 'Pylon' typifies Peryer’s combination of striking images which sum up an essential characteristic of New Zealand culture or landscape.
