Peter's latest poster, "Menemsha Glow" has just been published
A long time personal and fan favorite, Peter has just added "Menemsha Glow" to his "On the Vineyard" series. It replaces "Menemsha Harbor" which recently sold out. Both photographs were taken from the same vantage point, but at different times of day. Menemsha certainly has it's share of stunning sunsets, but this particular photo focuses on the clouds and evening light as reflected off the infamous set of fishing shacks and the "Galley" which frames the inner harbor.

The Simon Gallery is now open for the season. Normal hours are Friday through Monday, 11 to 5pm. Summer hours will be daily from 10 to 6pm.
The Simon Gallery, located at 54 Main Street in Vineyard Haven, now sports a "new look." During the spring, Peter and Ronni basically remodeled the whole space, top to bottom. The result is a much sleeker, cleaner looking gallery. The front of the gallery now features all of Peter's products (books, calendars and portfolios) as well as Ronni's latest jewelry and sculptures. There is also a new "line" of high end, numbered editions of Peter's iconic images, elegantly framed with black matting and a white edge. The knitted goods and yarn now occupies the back of the gallery, along with Peter's more politically oriented work. Please drop by to check in and see all the new creations that are handsomely displayed.

Peter has recently become more active as a entertaining
and informative lecturer on the college and corporate
circuit. His power point presentation of over 230 images
covers most aspects of a 50 year career as a photojournalist.
He was a major proponent and captured much
of the 60's alternative hippie culture. Many of his images
of the music, celebrities and the lifestyle are iconic.
His subject matter also includes nude beaches, the new
age spiritual scene in the 70's, reggae and Jamaica, baseball
and the New York Mets, the breathtaking beauty of Martha's
Vineyard, and pictures of lifestyles spun out of control
by substance abuse.
