THE FILMS | THE ARTISTS | THE WORDWISEWEB
Peter Cunningham lives on two islands: Grand Manan in the remote Canadian Maritimes and Manhattan in New York City. As a professional photographer for the last 30 years, his job has been to photograph musicians, actors, writers, children, brides, and businessmen, but his passion has been the creation of Still Films which string together images as if they were metaphors forming the body of a poem. Peter's Still Films (now in a small version on the web at http://www.stilltv.com) have been shown in New York, Tokyo, Paris, London, Krakow, and Beijing. ...
Peter thanks his teachers who include David McAllester, Plains Indian singer and anthropologist at Wesleyan University, photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson and Adger Cowens, and Bernie Glassman, a Zen teacher with whom Peter has traveled for 25 years.
Lisa Cunningham grew up in Greenwich Village, sang on the street, taught singing to children, sang, contracted and arranged vocals for studio sessions, toured and recorded with great and legendary musicians, and made recordings for Virgin and Warner Brothers Records as an artist. Lisa received a New York Music Award for Vocalist of the Year and was nominated for an Emmy award for her work as a theater critic.
She is currently a composer and writer in New York City.
