Over the weekend, famed photographer Peter Beard’s body was found in Long Island. On Monday, his daughter took to social media to pay tribute to him.


Peter, 82, had been missing from his cliffside Montauk compound since March 31, 2020, before he was recently found. The photographer had suffered from dementia.

Since his death was announced, his daughter, Zara Beard, 32, took to her Instagram account to honor his memory. She shared two images as a baby with her father.

The world lost a little bit of magic

In a lengthy post, Zara wrote that the world had lost “a little bit of its magic” from her father’s death. She also shared that Peter would continue to “live on” in her heart and “be loved forever” even though he was physically gone.

The photographer’s daughter shared her gratitude to those who helped her and her family and for the support they’d been given. She also included a snippet from a poem by Rum about “goodbyes.”


Legends never die


Zara ended her post by wishing her father a peaceful rest and added the hashtag: “Legends never die.” According to reports, Peter’s remains were found on Sunday in a wooded area of Camp Hero State Park.


Beard was found at a park

The park isn’t far from the home he shared with his wife Nejma and their daughter, who is also his survivors. Earlier in the month, Zara made a plea to the public to assist with search efforts.

Knowing we are under a pandemic, she asked people to search safely while practicing social distancing amid the novel coronavirus outbreak. She also revealed that her father had a heart condition.


Peter’s love for African nature

Peter’s main subject for his photography was African nature and wildlife. He’s also had an onetime fixture at Studio 54 and was friends with Andy Warhol.

What he was also known for

Besides focusing primarily on African nature, he also shot fashion for “Vogue” and concerts for the Rolling Stones. He was well-known for having a love of life, drug usage, was surrounded by famous friends, and his many party appearances.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
