Photographed from the window of a slow-moving train on a journey across China in 1992, Peter Bogardus's latest body of work is a meditation on the passage of time and of the persistence of memory. Not printed until some 25 years after his original journey, the prints were pulled from copperplates whose atmospheric imperfections reveal a mystical landscape encountered on the way to Dunhuang in the Gansu province of China. The suite consists of fourteen photogravure images printed by the artist on Kumohadamashi paper, with hand-mixed color pigment, adding to the images' ethereal quality.

Peter Bogardus is a photographer, printer, and book artist best-known for his images documenting spiritual places and pilgrimages. He shoots predominantly with a large-format film camera and prints his images from etched copperplates as photogravures. He produces his work in his studio in New York under his own imprint, Khelcom New York. He is a 2012 recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for Photography.
