P. T. Turk (Born 1947) was born in Miami, Florida. He has been perfecting his signature style for more than 35 years. Creating a unique blend of emotion and technique, he has worked for several years on his creative process to make it a consistent and integral extension of his life. He was raised in the 50s and 60s traditional Southern middle-class manner by his physician father. Turk attributes much of his success to the attitude of self-expression and individualism his father believed in so strongly. He considers his father as a special person who provided him with an environment of freedom and choices to do mostly as he wanted, so long as he pursued a college education. He graduated from Florida State University in 1970. He studied photography in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program of the university. Since Florida State University focused more on artistic expression rather than commercial technique, the artist was able to explore a number of photographic ideas and concepts, creating a variety of techniques that provide him with his own assorted photographic style.

Upon graduation from college, the realities of life set in. The darkroom became his experimental laboratory where he began altering and manipulating basic photographic images to create imageries that expressed his personal visions. These visions represented an inquisitive viewpoint of the photographed image, residing in interpretation somewhere between reality and fantasy. When he returned to Miami, he joined the working class and was playing in a rock band by night and driving a cab by day to sustain himself. It allowed him to continue his artistic endeavors with photography.
