About Peter Hemenway


When I was about 7 I started having pains in my abdomen. The doctors did not know what the problem was but in any case the pains went away.

 Sometime later when I was 8 the pains returned and my parents were given the idea to arrange to have my gallbladder removed.

In those days this was major surgery and when I woke up from the operation I decided on becoming a photographer.

I had been told I was the youngest person to have his gallbladder removed so I thought I must be very special! So I thought I must become the best at photography!

I was given a bicycle as a present when I arrived home.

To this day I have not lost my interest in photography and have traveled in over 45 countries and often with a bicycle!
