Reviews

A Photographic Memory is an exquisite art object in its own right... A testament to the cultural flowering of that time, A Photographic Memory conveys all the fugitive, ferocious beauty of the new.--Anya Ventura "Los Angeles Review of Books "
A spectacular monograph of Peter's photos called A Photographic Memory has just been printed by Damiani, the cult Italian publishers that produce some of the most sought-after photography, art and pop culture tomes today. The book is a sumptuous collection of over 30 years of photographs Peter collected throughout his career. Opulent snaps of boozy lunches, candlelit al fresco dinners in France, sleepy mornings in various lavish apartments and hotels all over Europe would be beautiful regardless of who features in them, but that's where these moments in time become really fascinating: they're punctuated with some of the most intriguing stars and creatives of the century.--Liv Siddall "Another Magazine "
Looking at Schlesinger's photos, you tend to imagine a story lurking below the surface of each image.... A Photographic Memory offers a blissfully carefree record of a lost bohemia. He photographed Manolo Blahnik getting a haircut; the Rolling Stones's gear during the Exile on Main St sessions at Villa Nellc te; his many-decades partner, Eric Boman, with their good friend Grace Coddington; David Hockney and Cecil Beaton; Paloma Picasso; Andy Warhol and Rex Reed in the back of a cab; and what seem to be an awful lot of accidentally beautiful moments, the kind of photographs people aspire to carefully orchestrate in their Instagram feeds now.--Rebecca Bengal "Vogue "
