The Darkroom: A Photographer Considers His Legacy

Oct 3, 2016

Peter Simon proudly poses with his archives.

In Peter Simon’s 50-year career, he’s photographed music legends—The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, and Bruce Springsteen, just to name a few—as well as Martha’s Vineyard landscapes, the hippie commune he lived on in the 1970s, and so much more.

Now, at age 69, Peter’s thinking about what kind of legacy he wants to leave.  Annie Sinsabaugh reports.

You can see Peter Simon’s legendary photographs on his website or at his gallery in Vineyard Haven. 

This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole.  Annie Sinsabaugh graduated from the workshop this past spring.  You can find out more about the program at Transom.org.
