In 2004 Pedro Meyer set himself what seemed like an impossible goal: to hold the first world wide simultaneous retrospective. This project, titled Heresies, comprised of over 60 simultaneous exhibitions in 17 countries around the world, a data base containing his entire life's work (+350,000 images and documents) and a book with the same title. This worldwide retrospective was celebrated during October 2008. More information on this project is available in www.pedromeyer.com.
In 1991 he published the very first CD ROM in the world that had "wall to wall" images and sound, titled "I Photograph to Remember". He is also the author of the books "Tiempos de América" (American Times), "Espejo de Espinas" (Mirror of Thorns), "Los Cohetes duraron todo el día" (The Fireworks Lasted All Day). His book "Truths and Fictions: A journey of documentary photography to digital" edited by Aperture, was also made later into a CD ROM by Voyager in 1995. "The Real and the True" published by Peach Pitt Press came out in 2005. His latest book "Heresies" came out in 2008 and was published by editorial house Lunwerg.
