Born 1946 in County Durham, England, Peter Reid retired from teaching in 2002 and immediately returned to his University, subsequently gaining MA photography. Since then he has developed an interest in Human Rights and their impact upon the life of a photographer. He is a former member of the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain and a past member of The Royal Musical Association. His other interests are classical music: vocal, piano and organ; and then there are Jaguars. In 2007 he was elected an associate member of The Royal Photographic Society.
