Chris Peregoy is an artist who has been actively showing photographically derived art works for the past 30 years. Originally trained in traditional photographic practices, his current work crosses the boundaries between digital, traditional and primitive photography and marries digital image making with historic photographic processes and painting. His images deal with forgotten or imagined memories.
His work has been shown in North and South America, throughout Europe, and in Japan. He has received a National Endowment for the Arts InterArts grant and two Maryland State Individual Artist Grants.
Peregoy's work with pinhole photography led him to form his own company, the Pinhole Blender Company, which sells his uniquely designed cameras throughout the world.
Chris Peregoy holds M.F.A. and B.A. degrees from the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
