Peter Boettcher started his career in the late 80’s when he shot cover for the independent music-magazine "spex" as LL Cool J, Morrissey (The Smiths), Sonic Youth, Salt ´n´Pepper, and R.E.M. Works for magazins as stern, Zeitmagazin, Vogue followed.

In 1991 Peter Boettcher photographed the electronic-pioniers KRAFTWERK in their legendary KLING-KLANG-Studio in Düsseldorf. This was the starting of a close and intense collaboration that continues to this day (see KRAFTWERK).

Peter Boettcher portrait-works don't follow any short-lived trends. From the beginning he concentrated on the person according to the motto: Less is more.
The artist’s photos express a clear visual language and formal objectivity. His work is reduced to the essential things and has its own timeless modern character.

As he presents a perfect unity of space and person his portraits are opposite and in a discourse against the superficial and in any way changeable results of postproduction.

Aside of his work with artists and musicians Peter Boettcher does commercials and editorials such as for Deutsche Bank, P7/Sat1, Loreal etc.
