My Bio Born into a family where his father was a film director and photographer, and mother a pianist, Peter has been immersed in the arts and photography all his life. He has travelled widely as a documentary photographer and has been published in countless magazines and newspapers.

His award winning photography has been exhibited in one-man touring exhibitions in UK (including regional galleries and museums, London's Commonwealth Institute, The Photographers Gallery and Edgeware Road Galleries) and abroad (Geneva and Israel).

His first book of photographs was published by Redcliffe (Medieval Brigands - A year in the life of the hippie convoy). Now retired, he lives with his wife in The New Forest, Hampshire, and in his spare time is working on his fifth book of photographs.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I am currently writing several books. Almost complete is 'New York before 9/11'. This should be published during October 2010.

Next to be published is 'Vanishing Portugal - Photographs of rural village life in the Minho'.

In the queue are books of photographs about Azerbaijan, Mongolia, Palestinians, Colombia, Africa, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Ukraine, and Romanian orphans.
