Peter Sanders began his career photographing the music icons of the 1960s. He was amongst the first Europeans to photograph the Hajj in 1971 and has continued to travel internationally, creating exhibitions, presentations and undertaking photographic workshops. He has just finished his latest collaboration Exemplars for Our Time, building on his previous book Meetings with Mountains: Encounters with the Saints and Sages of the Islamic World. He is currently working on a book about Muslims in China. Sanders continues to act as a translator of Islam to those interested in acquiring a greater understanding and to encourage broader and deeper interactions between people of different races and faiths.
