Photography & Travels

My photographs cannot capture the deep beauty of their subjects. Instead I think of them as windows into a moment, a place, a wonderful memory.

After embracing Islam in 2002, Peter undertook a series of journeys to cities with deep Islamic influence, such as Damascus, Aleppo, Fes, Granada, Medina, Konya, and Istanbul.

These are the photos from that trip which had a deeply inspiring impact on him, both spiritually and in his creative work.

Selected prints are available for purchase at Ahlan Art.
