Eye on the Island: Portraits by Peter Simon

Eye on the Island: Portraits by Peter Simon

During his life, renowned photojournalist Peter Simon (1947-2018) captured portraits of famous musicians and political movements, but his heart was always here on the Island. For more than 50 years, Peter photographed the Island and its people in all seasons. Recently, the Museum acquired nearly 300 of Peter’s candid portraits, taken during the 1990s. Some of the individuals have been identified, but many remain nameless. This exhibition features a selection of known and unknown faces, in the hopes that you can help us identify them!
