The Art of Seeing with Peter Sanders programs are designed to teach and instill the ability to tell a story through pictures. The best way to learn is from people who have mastered their craft. We want to create such an environment in different places in the world where everyone, from the beginner to the expert, may benefit from Peter’s vast knowledge and experience of photography and story telling
Peter Sanders began his career in the mid 1960s as one of London’s key photographers of rock musicians. His pictures of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, The Who and many others performing are classics of the genre. In 1970, he set off for India, cameras in hand. He travelled for seven months. This trip became a spiritual odyssey that led him onto Morocco and thereafter to the Holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, where he photographed the hajj at a time when few professional photographers had access to Islam’s holiest sanctuaries. Continuing to travel far and wide, Peter Sanders has built up a photographic archive of well over a quarter of a million transparencies from forty countries around the world.
