I started my career in photojournalism in Paris for Sipa Press in 1978. In 1982 I moved to London as a correspondent for the Angeli news agency for a few years before joining Gamma. In 1991 I decided to move to the East and settled in Moscow to run the Sygma bureau covering the end of the Soviet Union and the following Yeltsin years. I stayed in Russia until 1997 when I decided I needed to see the sun and moved to Miami. After a year in Florida, I moved to Washington DC where I started Newsmakers with a friend and covered the White House until October 1999 when I joined the editorial team at Getty Images in a management position.
I am the only photographer of my generation to have photos in the two books published by Michel Setboun on Sipa Press and Sygma. I also have a photo in the book on Gamma published by François Lochon. Unfortunately, Daniel Angeli has never made a book about the work of his photographers ;)
