Born and educated in Bulawayo, Peters has worked as a photographer for such publications as Johannesburg’s The Star (from 1978), The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Sunday Times of London, the Chicago Tribune, and finally Newsweek magazine – who published Peters’ photograph of Nelson Mandela’s triumphant walk to freedom on its cover.
