|Baseball and the Mets (23) |
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.
|Bob Marley (21) |
Peter was lucky enough to travel around within Bob Marley's inner sanctum during the late 70's, while documenting reggae music for a book called "Reggae Bloodlines." Although that book is long out of print, these images of Bob linger on, as his legendary status continues to grow.

|Counter Culture (46) |
Mostly during the 60's and 70's, Peter lived on the cutting edge of what was then called the "Alternative Lifestyle." This series of photos shows people living communally, seeking spiritual awakenings, and exploring various aspects of psychadelia. And the beat went on....
|Historical 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'.
|Led Zeppelin (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.
|Legendary People (124) |
Peter has been lucky enough to photograph most of the people he has admired through the years in, mostly, informal and initimate settings. This category displays some of his favorite pieces, both time honored and more recent. You my be familiar with many of these images, as many of them published or displayed around the world. For larger selections of Bob Marley, Carly Simon, Led Zeppelin and the Grateful Dead, please select those individual categories.
