Peter has been a die hard baseball fan since 1950, and a die hard Mets fan since their inception in 1962. During the glorious mid 80's Peter travelled around with the team while compiling pictures for his 1987 book celebrating their 25th anniversary. Since then, Peter has followed the team relentlessly, with some photo opps here and there. Check this section out if you just love the Mets, regardless of rational thinking.

|PHOTOS Historic Images (54) |
An ardent photojournalist since the mid 60's, this selection of images highlights many of Peter's captures while working for various newspapers and magazines during the turbulant political and cultural changes of the late 60's to mid 70's. Peter still takes an iconic historical shot these days, but most of this section deals with the times when they were a-changin'.
|PHOTOS Led Zeppelin 75 (15) |
Peter went on tour, briefly, with Led Zeppelin in the Spring of 1975 in Southern California. He was working with Stephen Davis for an article for the Atlantic Monthly. Although the story never ran, many of these photos surfaced in the book "Hammer of the Gods." And just now, a new book detailing that year even more intensely, our new collaboration, has just been published. It's called "LZ - '75" from Gotham Books! Peter's iconic shot of Robert Plant flailing his arms while exclaiming "I Am a Golden God" remains one his signature pieces.
|PHOTOS Legendary People (124) |
Through the years, Peter has had many rare photo opps with some of his favorite famous people.

Some personalities in this category have their own sections as well (carly, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin). Otherwise, this selection represents some of Peter's iconic images of those celebrated people that Peter admires the most.
