Hailed as the preeminent photographer of the Muslim world, Peter Sanders discusses his life’s work and latest book, Meetings with Mountains, with Habib Ali al-Jifri, a world-leading Islamic scholar featured in this enlightening and fascinating work.

This unique visual record of holy men and women from across the Islamic world shows the spiritual depth of Islamic culture and commemorates some of its greatest sages, scholars, and saints.

Join Sanders and Habib Ali as they explain why this project is both timely and important, and what has inspired Sanders to dedicate such love and care to this project to show the true spiritual side of Islam so rarely portrayed in popular culture and the media today.

This event is supported by Amal (a Saïd Foundation programme).
