Overview

This volume of stunning photography discloses the spirituality and ethos of a people and vast geography of earth in a way that cannot be communicated through an academic treatise or lecture. The photos of this book include the nooks and horizons of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, the Silk Route, and China-the people, landscapes, and architecture of an expansive and often misunderstood region.

Author Biography: Peter Sanders is internationally recognized as one of the world's leading photographers of the Islamic world. He began his career in the mid-1960's covering London's seminal rock-and-roll scene, capturing now legendary music icons in a collection that is considered a classic by collectors: images that include Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Who, The Rolling Stones, and others.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Photographer Peter Sanders offers arresting images of Muslim life around the globe in In the Shade of the Tree: A Photographic Odyssey Through the Muslim World. Sanders's use of light and shadow shows him to be a true artist; the simplicity of these photos is glorious. There are exterior (and even some stunning interior) shots of mosques, including Beijing's 1,000-year-old Niujie Mosque and Al-Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem, as well as astonishing portraits of individuals. Sanders includes photos from much of the Muslim world, including West Africa, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Turkey. (Aug.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
