Nobel Laureates in Portrait
This exhibition is is the longest-running of all exhibitions of the Lindau Meetings - it has been shown in numerous places around the world
The artist Peter Badge was born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1974 and began his career after studying art history as a freelance artist/photographer in 1993.
Choosing portraiture as his primary focus, Badge concentrates on noted personalities, including artists and actors, musicians and photographers such as the electronic music pioneer Oskar Sala or the popular German musician Marius Müller-Westernhagen.
Badge embarked on a series of photographs of Nobel Laureates in 2000, commissioned by a group of renowned organizations including the Deutsches Museum in Bonn and the Smithsonian Institution, the National Museum of American History and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., as well as his partners, the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
This project turned out to be a long-term, ongoing mission, which has taken him all over the world in order to capture images of every living Nobel Laureate – almost 400 so far.
