Walter Vogel (b. Germany, 1932) began making photographs in 1950 while a student of engineering. After completing his education, and following a number of years as a technical director for a chemical company, Vogel abandoned his profession to study photography with Otto Steinert at the Folkwangschule Essen from 1963 to 1968.
Vogel works as a documentary photographer/photojournalist, with his work appearing in newspapers and magazines since 1954. In 1964, Vogel was a prizewinner in the prestigious World Press Photo competition. He is known for his portraits of Düsseldorf visual artists and other creatives, among them Joseph Beuys and Pina Bausch, as well as making photo essays on other topics, including travel photography made in Italy, as well as parts of Africa and Asia.

- Pina Bausch (1940--2009) was one of several famous figures that Walter Vogel documented in Dusseldorf during the 1960s. This photograph captures the renowned choreographer and dancer rehearsing at the barre, and is one of several portraits of Bausch made by Vogel that document a young artist transitioning into a revolutionary figure of contemporary dance.
