Patrick Demarchelier
Steidl, $145

This monograph is the definitive guide to the photographic career of one of the most prodigious fashion photographers of our time. From his earliest work at Harpers Bazaar to his now mythic collaboration with Vogue, 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 iconic, incisive and as varied as his subject matter. This monograph provides an invaluable fashion reference point, all the while charting the course of our own cultural obsession with celebrity and beauty.
