"MARTHA'S VINEYARD - To Everything There Is A Season" – coming soon!
Last April Peter made short mention of THE book about the Vineyard he had been dreaming about for several years. Since most of his Island landscapes have a seasonal overlay, the most obvious way to structure this MAJOR, deluxe coffee table style effort was to follow the yearly cycles of Vineyard landscapes and lifestyles. It will contain over 250 pages along with over 500 photographs that cover almost every aspect of Island life during the four seasons. While mostly landscape oriented, his new book will also feature many people pictures and highlight various annual events (like the Chilmark Road Race, Possible Dreams Auction, The Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby, Menemsha Sunset frenzy, and a Summer People collection). Text by Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks and an insightful introduction by Peter's long time friend, music writer Stephen Davis further enhances this magnum opus. Stay tuned for further updates!
Celebrating the Grateful Dead's 50th Anniversary
Peter has been an avid follower and chronicler of his The Grateful Dead since 1969. He has recently unearthed many "new" photographs here to join a pre-existing gallery of iconic ones. Some of these photos will be showcased in the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie, Time, Life and Newsweek. Peter also recently uncovered a timeless and exclusive 60 minute interview he once conducted with Jerry in 1974, played over MVY radio in August. The Vineyard Gazette released an article, "Jerry Garcia Interview Sounds as Timely Today as It Did Forty Years Ago", which discusses how Peter uncovered this rare gem.
Marley: Up Close
One of Peter favorite artists, legends and prophets is Bob Marley. As his prominence only seems to grow as the decades go by (our president visited his museum in Jamaica recently), Peter is proud to share many of the intimate shots he took of the icon from 1976 through 1980.
Carly & James
Peter has recently expanded his collection on the Simon/Taylor family. Amassed since childhood, many of these shots are here to for unpublished and unseen. Some may be used in his sister's soon-to-be published autobiography
Through The Lens
This two-DVD set is packed with over 300 images and behind-the-scenes anecdotes. Fourteen chapters (each of which can be viewed separately) follow a "Forest Gump-esque" timeline of Peter's career.
The Simon Gallery
