More About Peter Badge

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Peter Badge was born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1974, and began his career in photography as a free-lance artist in 1993. In 1995, he moved to Berlin to study Art History and has been living and working there ever since. He initially worked as a free-lance photographer for different magazines, but soon started to develop his own ideas and projects.
Choosing portraiture as his main focus, Badge concentrated on noted personalities such as artists and actors, musicians and photographers, and in his latest works on Icons of the Economy? and Philanthropists?. He also did a series on the electronic music pioneer Oskar Sala and a documentary on Marius Mller-Westernhagen (in cooperation with Art Cologne and the National Music Center in Washington, D.C.).
Badge embarked on a series of photographs of Nobel Laureates in 2000, commissioned by a number of renowned organizations like the Smithsonian Institution, the National Museum of American History, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. and the Deutsche Museum as well as his partners, the Council for Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobelprizewinners Meetings at Lake Constance. This project turned out to be a long-term, ongoing mission which has taken him all over the world in order to capture an image of every living Nobel Laureate.
Peter Badge has published several books; his work is represented in numerous private and public collections and has been printed in newspapers and magazines.
Reviews on the exhibition presented at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History; Washington Post, May 4, 2001:
