He will truly be missed. I never had the honor of meeting him but like most people like him his work and his reputation preceeded him.

I noticed there is an email link on the Gowland web site, under the photo of Peter.

I am sure Alice would appreciate any emails of sympathy.

I used to work the National Hardware Show in Chicago.
I had the opportunity to meet a few of the Ridge Tool models Peter
had worked with. I had written Peter telling him how much I appreciated that calendar. Yes, I did get his autograph. It made him happy. He was very proud of the calenders and the many years that he had devoted to them. He was one of the best

I had way in the past heard of his name and how it was equated with "Glamour Photography"...but I never gave him much notice. Then only a year or so ago I bought one of his books at a second hand store. Great photographs and also insightful. I had thought of passing on a message to him in appreciation...but then forgot about doing that. Sometime after getting the book I found his website...but neglected to send an email.

Now it's too late.

Lesson to be learned? If you come across the works of a photographer and you are taken by them, do take the time to tell the author you appreciated his work. You may or may not get a response but I do know that we ALL like to get these words of acknowledgement.
