In 1992 Peter was asked by the EU to photograph all the kings, queens, presidents, and prime ministers of the EU. He was also hired to make two books: one about the architecture of the new Houses of Parliament and the other on the ultra modern building of the Ministry of Ecology & Urban Planning in The Hague, Netherlands.
