In this attractive book, photographer Peter badge captures the likeness of every living Noel laureate in a black-and-white image resulting in a total of more than 270 striking portraits. Bringing readers face to face with Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, the Dalai Lama, James Watson, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Toni Morrison, Rita Levi-Montalcini, Linda Buck, and Paul Samuelson among many others, "Nobel Faces" offers an intimate and compelling look at famous honorees as well as lesser-known recipients. Accompanying the photographs are brief geographical sketches, which celebrate each laureate's outstanding contribution to science, literature, or world peace, written by journalist Chris Richmond, with scientific advice by Jurgen and Leonore Uhlenbusch. Further texts are written by Anders Barany, Deputy Director of the Nobel Museum, and Nikolaus Turner, Board Member of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, while filmmaker Wim Wenders supplies the epilogue. The result is a fascinating image/world tableau.
"...candid and revealing..." "...the main focus is on scientists, people who are warmer and fuzzier than you might think..."
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 Mï¿½ller-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:
"...most notably an array of striking, large-scale, black-and-white photographs of Nobel laureates..." "...candid and revealing..." "...the main focus is on scientists, people who are warmer and fuzzier than you might think..."
