Peter Simon Photography - About Peter Simon 
Peter SimonPeter Simon, is a nationally acclaimed photographer, photojournalist, author, music historian, and instructor who has turned his unique collection of enthusiasms into a highly entertaining and insightful career of articles, books, cd's, fine art prints, and calendars.

Over the course of his nearly 40 year career he has covered an eclectic range of subjects documenting everything from the spirit of the free love and protest-filled 1960' and the greatest names in rock 'n' roll, reggae and pop music to the scenic beauty of his beloved Martha's Vineyard, the action of major league baseball, and stunning portraits of people from the everyday to the most celebrated personalities of our time.

In 2007, Peter's latest book, "Reggae Scrapbook" was published by Palace Press and has received rave reviews and excellent sales. In 2008, Peter, with his wife Ronni, fulfilled a decade long dream and opened up his own gallery. The Simon Gallery is now located right on Main Street in Vineyard Haven. The gallery offers an "in person" look at many of the products that are offered on his web site.

Peter Simon's work has been in many newspapers and magazines throughout the years, including Time, Newsweek, People, Village Voice, Atlantic Monthly, Cape Cod Life, Boston Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone. A resident of Martha's Vineyard since 1973, he has been a contributing photographer for the Vineyard Gazette for twelve years, and the Martha's Vineyard Times since 1984. In 1980, he published On the Vineyard (Doubleday), which was the start of a series including On the Vineyard II (Simon Press, 1990), and On the Vineyard III (Simon Press, 2000). In addition, among the other 9 books Peter Simon has published are Decent Exposures (Wingbow Press, 1973), Carly Simon Complete (Knopf, 1975), Reggae Bloodlines ((Doubleday, 1976), Playing in the Band (St. Martin's Press, 1983) and The New York Mets: 25 Years of Baseball Magic (Henry Holt, 1987). In 2001 Little Brown published a comprehensive retrospective of his life work as a handsome coffee table book, I and Eye.

His photographs have appeared at various island galleries over the years, including On the Vineyard gallery, The Field Gallery, The Old Sculpin Gallery, and off-island, he has had one-man shows at The Nikon House and Niekrug Gallery in New York, and the Kiva Gallery in Boston.
