Patrick Demarchelier – Lumière
Fotografiska
February 24 – May 14, 2017

 

World famous, respected and highly appreciated fashion photographer exhibits at Fotografiska with Lumière February 23 – May 14. ”Show me the light – and it makes me tick”, says this charming, ever curious legend, who regards his models as artists, and who is always waiting for his best photograph to come. For Patrick Demarchelier, photography is not a profession – it is a passion. I just love it. Everything about it. Every day is an adventure and it doesn’t matter if it’s about fashion, portraits or personal projects. It’s always incredibly interesting what the result of the day will be.

To exhibit at Fotografiska, which I’ve heard so much about, is very exciting, says Patrick Demarchelier, one of the world’s most successful fashion photographers of all time. His passion for photography, and for life, glows around this icon, who has been in the centre of the world of fashion since the 1970s. He resides since many years in New York with his wife, Swedish model Mia, and the couple has three children. One of them, their son Victor is deeply involved in his father’s studio.

But everything has a beginning, and for Demarchelier it started with a camera as a present from his stepfather. Young Patrick, growing up with his mother in Le Havre, instantly got a taste for photography, which took him to Paris in search for a job. Eventually he seized a position at an agency taking portfolio portraits for models. That’s how I ended up in the fashion industry. I didn’t have a particular interest for fashion or clothes; it was photography itself that I loved. “Show me the light and it makes me tick”. One thing led to another and I got a job as an assistant with photographer Hans Feurer who worked for Vogue in Paris.
