The unique vision of photographer Patrick Demarchelier is instantly recognizable in the pages of fashion and culture magazines across the globe. He has captured the world's best - known faces and models wearing the latest couture season after season. Yet beyond the inconstancy of celebrity and fashion, the focus of Demarchelier's photography is consistently form.
For this book, Demarchelier has selected his most successful and striking images to make a multi-faceted artistic statement. Portraits of personalities ranging from Princess Diana to boxer Oscar de la Hoya are juxtaposed with Demarchelier's most iconic fashion images as well as unpublished work that includes safari animals and sumo wrestlers, people from exotic lands, and evocative underwater nudes that showcase the sensual female form.
For anyone with a finger on the pulse of photography, fashion, and art, Forms is not to be missed.
Signed by Demarchelier on the half-title.
