“I have that one second, the moment she forgets about the camera, when I can make someone relax and become her real self. That is the moment I want to capture,” states Patrick Demarchelier, internationally renowned fashion and portrait photographer known for his ability to represent the true personalities of his subjects. He discovered his passion at 17, experimenting with his first camera. By 1975, he had moved to New York and was working for Vogue, beginning to build a portfolio that now includes innumerable celebrities and supermodels. Princess Diana admired his work and, in 1989, commissioned him to photograph her and Princes William and Harry, leading to his role as the first non-British official photographer for the Royal family. Demarchelier is particularly drawn to female subjects, the result, he cheekily claims, of “always being surrounded by men” growing up.
