Staff Report

BRUSSELS, 6 DECEMBER 2005 —Patrick Demarchelier, official photographer of the Condé Nast group, has a client list that includes names such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Armani, or Janet Jackson, Nicole Kidman, Madonna and Hillary Clinton.

The French-born (1943) photographer moved to New York in 1975 where he established himself a reputation in fashion and portrait photography.

Influenced by the classics of photography and painting, Patrick Demarchelier plays with light, lines and forms of the human body, the fashion cloth or the wild elephant in the African landscape, always looking for beauty.

His show on view until 10 December 2005 at the Young Gallery in Brussels includes some choice images from his extensive portfolio—including this unexpected photo of Gwyneth Paltrow in leather dominatrix togs.
