Walter Pfeiffer is the Z├╝rich based photographer whose portraits of friends, lovers, still life and scenery always taken with a large dose of fun have inspired a generation of photographers.

His publication Welcome Aboard, Photographs 1980-2000 brought with it a revival in the realistic photography movement at the turn of the century and since then Pfeiffer has collaborated with international magazines such as i-D, Butt, Vogue Paris, Self Service and Fantastic Man. Additionally, Pfeiffer has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions. In 2008, Fotomuseum Winterthur presented In Love with Beauty, an unprecedented chronological overview of his work, spanning four decades from his beginnings in the early 1970s to his most recent work. An exhibition catalogue published by Steidl marked the event.

His other publications include Walter Pfeiffer-Scrapbooks 1969-1985(2012), Cherchez La Femme! (2007), Night and Day (2007), Welcome Aboard, Photographs 1980-2000 (2001), The eyes, the thoughts, ceaselessly wandering (1986) and Walter Pfeiffer (1970 - 1980) (1980).
