Peter Badge was born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1974, and started 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 acted as an assistant to photographers, but soon started to develop his own ideas and projects. Choosing portraiture as his main area of interest, Badge concentrated on portraits of noted personalities such as rock musicians, actors and famous photographers like Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Anton Corbijn, and developed a series on Oskar Sala, the electronic music pioneer.
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 and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. This project turned out to be a long-term and still ongoing mission which took 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.
