Peter Hutchinson is a British born artist who has lived and worked on a large plot of land in Provincetown, MA for over 55 years. A master gardener and process photographer, Hutchinson is recognized as a pioneer in both the land art and narrative art movements. 

Hutchinson is known for his photo-based conceptual artworks that document ephemeral interventions he creates with the landscape. These interventions often utilize such materials as flowers, food and found objects in natural environments like the ocean, mountains and fields. Handwritten texts that both document and comment upon the circumstances of the creation accompany the photographs. In so doing, Hutchinson’s work becomes an exploration into the layered, interrelated qualities of nature and language.
