Peter studied photography at MIT in the early 1970s under Minor White and has taught at OCAD University since 1976 where he is currently Professor teaching Photography and Book Arts in the Faculty of Art.

Peter Sramek has been photographing European cities for the past 25 years, following an interest in history, medieval sites and the worn stones which speak of the past. Rephotography as a strategy began for him with a project on Josef Sudek's panoramas of Prague and has taken him to Florence and Paris in an examination of how photographs have been used to record these cultural centres. The book of his last rephotographic project, Piercing Time: Paris After Marville and Atget 1865-2012, is distributed by the University of Chicago Press.
Current projects are based on walking explorations of cities such as Ahmedabad in India. His walks covering over 250 kms of old roads and trails south of Kyoto into the mountains of Kansai have produced a new series of black and white panoramic photographs rooted in an action of pilgrimage to the sacred mountain of Omine-san.
