Raymond Meier was born in Switzerland in 1957. He began his photography career in 1972 with an apprenticeship at the Zurich Art School. At the age of twenty he opened his own studio in Zurich where he focused primarily on industrial and corporate photography. His work evolved to include portraiture, advertising, and ultimately fashion.
In 1986 he moved to New York City to concentrate on still life and fashion. Since then he has come to be recognized as one of the leading photographers in his field.
Today, in addition to his advertising work, he is a contributing photographer to American and International editions of VOGUE and THE NEW YORK TIMES , STYLE MAGAZINE.
His first book, LOUIS KAHN DHAKA, was published in fall 2004. The two-volume set features the architecture of the capital complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
