With an afterword by Wim Wenders.
More than 270 black-and-white photographs of Nobel Prize Winners such as Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, J.M. Coetzee, Roy J. Glauber, James Watson or Jimmy Carter, each accompanied by a short biography.
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 Müller-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.
