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
