Michael Meissner lives and works in Cologne as Creative Director in an advertising agency. For over 20 years he has been mesmerized by the idea of freezing moments and scenes to brand them with a unique, personal view.


He believes that fascination can be found within the ordinary, and that most stories of life taste their best when served raw. Therefore he seeks to find visual thrills, unsuspected beauty and true soul in his close surroundings as well as on travels.

Currently, Michael is working on his ongoing longterm project "Masala", collecting characters, situations and all kinds of little oddities that he encounters while repeatedly travelling India.
