Book format: An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
By: Peter Badge, Sandra ZarrinbalEveryone has heard of the Nobel Prize. Not so many are familiar with the personalities of those who have won the honour. One man (apart from the Swedish king) who knows all the living Nobel laureates person- ally is Peter Badge. For 13 years he has been travelling the world to commission, photographing these illustrious luminaries.To date, the Berlin photographer has met and photo- graphed more than 400 of them, usually in locations they have chosen and in poses of their own preference. Now Peter Badge has collected his unique record in a book: INGENIOUS ENCOUNTERS. The book, lav- ishly illustrated with photographs, is also a travel book, for Badge's meetings with the Nobel laureates were far more than just photo shoots. He took a look behind the scenes, got to know the human beings behind the achievements, and found himself in unusual situations.
