With Daniel Filipacchi and Willy Rizzo, Benno Graziani was part of the founding team of the famous French magazine Paris-Match in 1949. As an international correspondent, he travelled the world and lived with the most famous celebs of this world, always with a camera in his hand, always with humour and kindness. "Benno is very funny but he always has his camera in his hand" said John Kennedy to Jackie's bodyguard. Benno loved everyone and everyone loved Benno. Federico Fellini was even inspired by him for the "Dolce Vita". Among his friends, there were Jackie Kennedy, Gianni Agnelli, Kirk Douglas, Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Fonda, Brigitte Bardot and Princess Grace of Monaco. Benno Graziani liked to say: "There are people who make history, there are people who suffer it and there are people who tell it. That's me." Benno passed away in 2018, after 96 years of an extraordinarily life.
