Patrick Demarchelier at A. Galerie in Paris

Christy Turlington Patrick Demarchelier

Patrick Demarchelier’s work is currently on show at A. Galerie, located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris across the street from the Yves Saint Laurent – Pierre Bergé Foundation. Here are a few of my favorite pictures to give you a sneak peek of this exhibition named Desire ending July 22nd.

L’œuvre de Patrick Demarchelier est actuellement exposée à la A. Galerie dans le 16ème arrondissement, juste en face de la Fondation Yves Saint Laurent – Pierre Bergé. Voici quelques-unes de mes photos préférées pour vous donner un aperçu de cette expo nommée Désire qui se termine le 22 juillet.

Pants Patrick Demarchelier

A French photographer living in New York City, Patrick Demarchelier has collaborated with nearly all the major fashion publications and brands. For this exhibition, A. Galerie has selected only works in black and white. The 20 images represent mostly well-known models, highlighting Demarchelier’s ability to capture the woman’s body. I’m not sure who said this (Cindy Crawford maybe?): Demarchelier’s women are always strong. Portrayed here without the adornments of fashion, they are free to express their own character. Demarchelier’s style reminds me at times of Peter Lindbergh, whom I told you about in a past post.

Angelina Jolie Patrick Demarchelier

Français vivant à New York, Patrick Demarchelier est un personnage incontournable de la photographie de mode. Pour cette expo, la A. Galerie a sélectionné 20 photographies en noir et blanc, représentant essentiellement des top models et mettant en valeur le corps de la femme. Je ne sais plus quel mannequin a dit ça (Cindy Crawford peut-être) : les femmes de Demarchelier sont toujours fortes. Débarrassées ici des fioritures de la mode, elles peuvent exprimer librement leur caractère. Son travail me rappelle parfois celui de Peter Lindbergh dont je vous avais parlé à l’occasion d’une autre expo.

    What fabulous photos, I wish I was in Paris now. oh well!! sigh. Lyn

  2. I’ve loved Demarchelier since I first came across his work in college. He always manages to show women so gracefully and beautifully; the nudity never feels exploitative the way a lot of nude shoots can. Sad I won’t be able to see this exhibit!

    Thanks for sharing this! I can’t wait to go see it (this week) in person now.. Looks like a stunning exhibition.. Did you visit the Chanel N5 exhibition when it was going on? It was beautiful and so well done! Even my non-interested -in-fashion-or-beauty boyfriend liked it. =]

  4. Amazing photographer. Christie has always been one of my favourite: she seem unimpressed by the celebrity aspect of her profession, has intellectual pursuits and seems grounded. So few are able to deal with such success in such a dignified manner.

    Absolutely love the one with the supermodels: Eva, Naomi, Karen, Cindy et al – there will never be another group of models like that. Or perhaps I am showing my age… :-)
