When I met Ralph Wenig at the top of a temple in Mandalay (Myanmar) in 1994, I really understood the saying “it’s a small world” – we actually lived in two adjacent streets in Paris! The following year, our shared passion for traveling off the beaten path lead us both on a Burmese adventure to the peaks of the Himalayas. What would always be a great friendship quickly turned into a shared mission – the desire to have unforgettable experiences, discover new places, cultures, sounds, objects, and people, who would in turn inspire our personal creative visions.
After working as an assistant to some of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers in Paris, Ralph moved to ultra cosmopolitan New York. He began working independently as a photographer in 1997 before returning to Paris, where he embarked on a personal creative journey that would include reporting, fashion series for the international press, and celebrity portraits. His professional approach, attention to detail, feel for composition, sophisticated use of light, and immediate understanding of the modernity that I have tried to inject into the Swarovski brand have been a precious resource for illustrating my creative vision. I find his images wonderfully seductive, and his portraits of me have a truth to them that only a true friend could capture. It is such a pleasure to work with him and grow in our respective careers together. Not to mention the absolute Zen-like atmosphere when we shoot, an aspect often missing in our daily work with the frantic preparation of collections!
