The Decisive Moment: Ema Peter

Architectural photojournalist Ema Peter has documented some of the most significant contemporary buildings in West Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, and around the globe for the past fifteen years, garnering awards for her images and collaborating with top local and international architects.

Born in Bulgaria, Ema Peter spent much of her youth on set with her father, who worked as a cameraman for avant-garde film productions. Interested in documenting life as it happens, she became a news anchor for Bulgarian TV, eventually leaving Bulgaria to pursue an internship in photojournalism at the Magnum photo agency in Paris. Ema Peter’s love of modern architecture was ignited by her visits to Villa La Roche, designed by Le Corbusier, in Paris. Inspired by its clean lines and Le Corbusier’s visionary thinking, she drew from her training in photojournalism to document the architectural world around her.

This exhibition features residential homes in West Vancouver and coastal British Columbia designed in the West Coast Modern vernacular. The works illustrate Ema Peter’s unique ability to catch fleeting moments: figures moving through space, a cloud tracing the sky, or a rare quality of light.
