Peter Campus is an American artist well known for his contribution to the transformation of video art into an accepted fine art medium. In addition to video art, Campus has also worked with photography and computer imaging, focusing on the subject of nature and the exterior. Since 1972, Campus has had over 40 solo exhibitions, including shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum in New York City.

According to Campus, making the shift from video art to photography was less about the medium used and more about switching from the interior to the exterior. His experience with classical photography eventually led him to digital imaging, which gave him more opportunities to reconstruct the images in a way that more clearly communicated his thoughts.
