This monograph is the definitive guide to the career of one of the most prodigious fashion photographers of our time. From his earliest work at Harper's Bazaar to his now mythic collaboration with Vogue, Patrick Demarchelier has single-handedly redefined the fashion photograph and the fashion industry along with it. His celebrity portraits have shaped the public personae of figures ranging from Princess Diana to Madonna. Demarchelier is everywhere at once, with a photographic sensibility that is as iconic, incisive and as varied as his subject matter. Published to coincide with the exhibition Patrick Demarchelier: Images et Mode à Paris at the Petit Palais, Paris, and featuring more than 400 of Demarchelier's most telling photographs, this volume provides an invaluable fashion reference point, all the while charting the course of our own cultural obsession with celebrity and beauty. All proceeds go to the charity Police--Action Solidaire.
Born outside Paris in 1943, Patrick Demarchelier relocated to New York in 1975, where he began his editorial career with Harper's Bazaar and Hearst Publications. His photographs appear regularly on the covers and in the pages of publications such as Vogue and Vanity Fair, among many others. He was the 2007 recipient of the Eleanor Lambert Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. He continues to live and work in New York.

Patrick Demarchelier is an epic volume, in size and content, which serves as a catalog, a visual diary, a chronicle, and treasury of some of the most identifiable images from the 20th and 21st centuries taken by Demarchelier. Not only is the book filled with superb and memorable images, but there is also practically no text to encounter while viewing this mini museum disguised as a book. There are few who can compare their body of work to this artist. (Jeffrey Felner New York Journal of Books)
Patrick Demarchelier is a prolific, award-winning modern photographer who since the mid-1970s has worked for almost every major fashion publication, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s BAZAAR, Allure and Glamour. This new monograph collects over 400 of his most referential images from that period of time. Originally published to be available for his exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris, entitled “Patrick Demarchelier: Images et Mode à Paris,” this book is thick with both imagery as well as artistic inspiration. The works range from commercial print editorial to private portraits, and although extremely proficient in the use of color, Demarchelier truly excels in the arena of black-and-white monochromatic photographs.
