Mischa Haller is a Swiss documentary and portrait photographer based in London.

His photography focuses on details and chance moments to show the larger picture of life.

At times quirky and humorous, his photos highlight the pathos of human existence and the poignancy of time spent waiting or watching or hoping.


He is represented by L A Noble gallery.
