PETER LIK

THE ARTIST

World-renowned, highly awarded, and boasting a huge international following, Peter Lik's journey as a photographer has taken him from humble beginnings in his native Australia to the summit of international landscape photography. Entirely self-taught, Lik became enamored with the mighty landscapes of America, particularly the Southwest. After extended visits to the country in the 1980s, he decided to settle in Las Vegas, centrally located to the landscapes he loves so much. The rest is photographic history.

Peter Lik has spent over 30 years pushing the boundaries of fine art. A self-taught pioneer in the field of landscape photography, he has become synonymous with pristine images of cascading waterfalls, ethereal mountain peaks and peaceful desert canyons.
