New York, Paris, Los Angeles and Berlin are the most important stations of Russ's creative input while developing his distinctive form of expressionism. 45 years of photography and film are the basis for the multi-faceted mastery of his art. Michael Andreas Russ's avantguardistic treatments to photography are based on black and white film, resulting in his TinTone process.

"Russ's pictures reveal the sensuality and aestheticism of the female body. They reflect a spectacular experimental power, incorporating various photographic techniques, like layering, solarization and rayogramming to his negative/positive images. The artist's imaginative, partly eccentric arrangements evoke an atmosphere of mood which lends character and irresistible attraction taking the viewers mind effortlessly to the surreal world of motion pictures." - Kunst Magazin Berlin
