Spa Town Photos

World Heritage - eleven spa towns in pictures


Torben Beeg

Torben Beeg is an independent architectural and commercial photographer, as well as a filmmaker based in Baden-Baden, Germany.

An enthusiastic photographer of historical architecture, the main focus of his work has been on architectural photography of spa towns since 2018. He supports Baden-Baden’s administrative office for World Heritage and urban development with his photography, supplying them with images of the most important sights.

Torbens Beeg’s artistic approach is marked by an acute attention to detail through every stage of the process, from the framing of a shot to the careful retouching of eyesores and imperfections. Optimal lighting and graphically perfect compositions ensure the necessary visual effect. The results are precise, natural images with a narrative focus – images that not only capture the setting but also the way in which individuals live and interact with them.

His work has been published in AD, AD online, AIT online, Baden-Baden Exklusive, Badisches Tagblatt, BNN, Engel & Völkers, Falstaff, GoodTimes, GQ, Lust auf Gut, Maschine & Technik, Rizzi & Co, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Vogue, and Playboy.
