Peter Boettcher started his career in the late 80’s when he shot LL Cool J, Morrissey, Sonic Youth, Salt ‘n’ Pepper, and R.E.M. for the independent music-magazine “spex”. Works for magazines as stern, Zeitmagazin and Vogue followed. In 1991 Peter Boettcher photographed the electronic pioneers KRAFTWERK in their legendary KLING-KLANG-Studio in Düsseldorf. This was the starting of a close and intense collaboration that continues to this day. Peter’s portraits don’t follow any short-lived trends. From the beginning he concentrated on the person according to the motto: Less is more. Aside from his work with artists and musicians, Peter shoots commercials and editorials for clients such as Deutsche Bank, P7/Sat1 and Loreal.
