Baron De Meyer was born in Paris and educated in Dresden. He joined the Royal Photographic Society in 1893 and then the breakaway photo-secessionist group, the Linked Ring in 1898. In the early 1900s the house he shared with his wife at 1 Cadogan Gardens was a centre for a coterie of artistic and bohemian guests. Cecil Beaton dubbed him 'the Debussy of photography'. In 1913 he moved to New York to work as the leading photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair.
