Explore hidden architectural and cultural treasures in the landscape and the communities immortalized by legendary Florida writer Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. The workshop will provide a contemporary window into the region’s past and rich heritage. Photographic opportunities include natural and man-made landscapes, local landmarks, as well as the interior of historical buildings.

Peter Schreyer is an internationally exhibited, award-winning photographer who has documented America’s cultural landscape for over three decades. He has received a wide range of public art commissions, research grants and recognition awards for his black-and-white photography on Florida communities, including a Visual Arts Fellowship from the State of Florida. In 2005-2006, Schreyer was honored with a major retrospective titled Small Stories From A Big Country at the Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey, Switzerland. He was named Arts Educator of the Year by United Arts in 2009 and a Neighborhood Hero by Bank of America in 2010. He has served as Executive Director of Crealdé School of Art since 1995, and in 2007 founded the Hannibal Square Heritage Center in Winter Park, a unique cultural facility that celebrates community heritage through documentary photography, oral history and public art. In 2015, following his solo exhibition at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College, Winter Park, seven of Schreyer’s Central Florida archival photographs were purchased for the museum’s prestigious Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art.
