Peter Ruting was born in Amsterdam on the 5th of November 1938 and passed away on the 12th of February 2015. As ayoung man Peter studied in Amsterdam at the Institute of Fine Arts and Crafts, nowadays called "the Rietveld Academy". After his graduation in 1960 he worked as a freelance photographer. In 1968 he branched out and opened a studio in Amsterdam. All sorts of people found their way to him, bringing in a wide range of commissions. Advertising agencies, companies, and other organizations called on him, to photograph projects of increasing scale. Amongst the largest commissions where campaigns for banks, breweries, and the dairy industry.

In the meantime, Peter Ruting felt a growing need to spend time on his own work. During the seventies, he decreased his commercial commitments, and concentrated more and more on his personal work.
Around 1980 the balance shifted markedly in favor of the exploration of his own photography. Though the ground work had been ready for some time, the shift was a slow process. In 1983 Peter Ruting made his debut with results of his photographic explorations at the Canon Photo Gallery in Amsterdam. Since that day many exhibitions of his work have followed, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
