This exhibition, titled after one of Peter Peryer’s photographs Holy Tomato (2006) is just one of the 150 works the Sarjeant Gallery has in its collection. This exhibition features works created between 2003 and 2018, which were acquired by the Gallery in 2021 with generous assistance from his estate. With the addition of these works the Sarjeant has one of the most comprehensive collections of Peryer’s photographic practice in a public gallery.
