Our first Photo Basel Virtual Booth will feature works by the German photographer Vincent Peters, one of the most active and sought after portrait and fashion photographers of the last quarter century.

Born in Bremen in 1969, Vincent Peters left Germany at the age of 20 to work as a photo assistant in New York. In 1995 Vincent returned to Europe, focusing on personal projects and art galleries before launching in 1999 new ideas and a new career as a fashion photographer for Giovanni Testino’s agency.

His special gift as a “master of light” in his first year was responsible for the worldwide campaigns of exclusive brands such as Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and Wolfgang Joop.

Vincent Peters impresses with his own unmistakable style: the artist sees light as a dramaturgy and a sensitive instrument with which he changes the model and image in a sophisticated manner. In his analogue pictures, Peters does not seek technical perfection, but the emotional personal mood and message of his photos, what remains are essential to him until today.

In the past 20 years Peters has been one of the very few photographers worldwide to establish himself at the leading edge of international fashion photography. His pictures shown on the covers of iconic magazines such as GQ, The Sunday Times, Numéro, Glamor or Harper’s Bazaar. Vincent also photographed for the many international editions of Style Bible Vogue, thereby creating an outstanding reputation.

A few years ago Vincent Peters also moved into the fine art and gallery world with “Personal” and “The Light Between Us” and recently “selected works” which were highly successful on the art book market. Regular exhibitions in prestigious galleries reached a climax in 2019, when he gave a much-noticed retrospective of his work in the museum Fotografiska in Stockholm (and Tallinn) with over 126,000 visitors.
