Peter Barss

My photographer

I'm indebted to Peter Barss for splendid photographs of my work.

Peter is the author of Images of Lunenburg County (McClelland and Stewart) and Older Ways -- Traditional Nova Scotian Craftsmen (Van Nostrand Reinhold).

Peter Barss traces his Nova Scotian ancestry back to Captain Joseph Barss of Lunenburg County, master of a notorious privateer called the Liverpool Packet. He and his wife live in West Dublin and operate Barss Studios in Bridgewater.

Barss studied photography at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. After an early career as a teacher, he decided to devote his full time to photography. His photographs have been published in numerous magazines, have been purchased by the National Film Board of Canada and the Nova Scotia Art Bank, and have been for group shows in Canada and the United States.
