A member of the wealthy Rosthschild family—his mother was the famous jazz patron Panonnica who was a Rothschild—, Koenigswarter made a name in the Philippines as a photographer in the fashion and advertising industries.

He married socialite Eva Abesamis with whom he had a son named David who is now a jazz musician.

The late photographer had a very colorful life, just like his father’s who fought in World War 2 with the Allies and his free-spirit mother.
