Michael von Graffenried was born in Berne, Switzerland in 1957. Based in Paris he started as a photojournalist in 1978, travelling the world for numerous publications and works today on long term projects using different kinds of media frames, such as outdoor campaigns on public billboards or film.

“He works fast with a 35mm camera, photographs in both color and black and white (the latter with high contrasts and a certain degree of graininess), and thrives on the inconsistencies life throws in his direction. His alertness to the humor available in the daily round of things… places him in the tradition of Robert Doisneau and Elliott Erwitt, the two men who first gave funny photographs a decent reputation.”

Vicki Goldberg, The New York Times, August 11, 2009
