Meetings with Mountains by Peter Sanders

Inspiral Books

In 1971 photographer Peter Sanders began a five-decade, round-the-world photographic odyssey that mirrored his own spiritual journey as a Muslim. The result is ‘Meetings with Mountains’, an absolutely unique visual record of saintly men and women from across the Muslim world who present a stunning picture of Islamic spirituality, in stark contrast to the extremist stereotypes that have come to be associated with Islam in our time. This magisterial 380-page photographic essay features over 250 photographs, capturing encounters with nearly one hundred illuminated souls.
