Peter Korniss born in Kolozsvar, (Cluj, Transylvania, Romania) 1937.

Theatre and dance photography has always been at central focus in his professional career.

He has earned his reputation as a documentary photographer. He dedicated more than forty years to photographing the traditional peasant life in Eastern Europe, mainly in Transylvania. His photo albums, Heaven’s Bridegroom (1975), Passing Times (1979), Inventory – Transylvanian Pictures (1998) and Attachment (2008) are a tribute to a disappearing culture.  At the same time he spent ten years following the life of a migrant worker which resulted in the book The Guest Worker (1988).

Since 1983 he has been a member of the Advisory Board of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund  (USA) and since 1984 of the World Press Photo International Advisory Committee. In 2007 he became founding member of the World Photographic Academy.
