During a contract of over 18-months working on an offshore project in a fabrication yard south of Luanda, Peter not only took many photographs of the area around Benguela but also painted ‘al-fresco’. The photographs presented here capture the immediate feeling of the market places and the way the local people lived after the end of the strife of civil war. It is clear that he connected with the children and exhibits here their warmth and openness to being photographed. Peter sold many paintings during his time in Benguela/Lobito to local people that were encouraged by an outsider taking an interest in their poor but rejuvenating way of life and standard of living. One particular photograph of children diving off of a wreck of a boat sunk in the war underscores this rejuvenation.
