Overview

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..."
