PETER SANDERS began his career in the 1960's as one of London's leading photographers of rock musicians. His pictures of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, The Who and many others, are considered classics of the genre. In the late 1960's Sanders embarked on a spiritual journey that would take him to India, North Africa and then in 1971, to the Holy City of Makkah where he photographed the Hajj at a time when few professional photographers had access to Islam's holiest Sanctuary. Since then he has been granted special access to photograph the protected cities of Makkah and Madina. His empathy with both spiritual masters and ordinary people has opened many doors, allowing him to be the first person to photograph many great Muslim scholars. Having travelled far and wide, Peter Sanders has built up an archive of photographs that are in great demand from publishers and media houses around the world. In the Shade of the Tree represents a small selection from this rich collection of spiritual images.
