Join Peter Sanders for a journey through Islamic lands, a voyage that influenced not only his photography but also his system of belief. Peter’s photography is truly breathtaking, and it brings the beauty of the Islamic world to the viewer in a unique and intimate way. From Morocco to China, Peter will take you through a world of stunning beauty and bring it to life with his vibrant photographs and scintillating stories. The talk will show how the places Peter captured with his camera have captured so many hearts and minds.
The event will include a panel discussion (6:30 – 8:00 PM) and a reception with some light refreshments and a chance to speak to Peter (8:00 – 9:00 PM).
This talk is brought to you by The Barakat Trust, the Aga Khan Foundation, and the Aga Khan Centre Gallery where it will be held. The Barakat Trust is a UK-based charity which supports the study and preservation of Islamic art and heritage, with over 750 grants given across more than 40 countries to promote and protect Islamic cultural heritage. The Aga Khan Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life, promote pluralism, and enhance self-reliance in marginalised communities in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The Aga Khan Centre Gallery, located on the ground floor of the Aga Khan Centre, is home to a changing programme of exhibitions and events that aim to create a better understanding of Islam and Muslim cultures, past and present.
