VOGUE Germany editorial
THOMAS | TREUHAFT
A native Berliner, Mecke spent several years assisting Peter Schmidt, the brand identity master of Jil Sander and Toblerone. Ralph’s career took off when his portraits of intellectuals and cultural icons were first published in French Vogue. Smart and expressive, his carefully constructed images cut to the heart of his subjects, creating unexpected and unobstructed views into their worlds. Today, Ralph’s portraits range from actress Keira Knightley to artist Julian Schnabel to Olympic champion Usain Bolt. He also shoots for American Vogue and L’Oreal. Ralph currently lives in Paris and New York.
