Two Book Signing Events for Author Peter Olwyler

By Michael Olwyler

Two book signing events will take place in San Miguel for Peter Olwyler’s just-released book of black-and-white photographs of the people and city of San Miguel de Allende and surrounding central Mexico, San Miguel de Allende and Its People.

The Instituto Allende will host the first of these book signings on Tuesday, March 13, 6pm in the Patio La Pergola. The second book signing event will take place at the Biblioteca on March 16 from 3–5pm in the Quetzal Room.

Peter took these black-and-white photographs between 1955 and about 1971 during his early Mexico period. They are a tribute to the Mexicans and expatriates of the city of San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding Bajio, as well as to Peter’s life. The images are historically significant, cover interesting topics, and are truly beautiful. Many have never been seen before. The text is in both Spanish and English.

Michael, Peter’s son, designed and published this slim book packed with images which include photos of farmers, artists, vendors, teachers, students—the salt of the earth of central Mexico. Since his father’s passing in 1999, Michael has been archiving and accessioning Peter’s over 40,000 images. “I want to perpetuate Peter’s legacy by sharing with others his fine-art photojournalism and to encourage a better understanding of the cultural milieu in the Bajío area of central Mexico and of San Miguel de Allende and its people,” he said.
