Since 1992 he has worked with Harper's Bazaar, becoming it's premier photographer. Demarchelier was awarded the contract for the 2005 Pirelli Calendar.
I am really inspired by the work of Demarchelier, I find his photography really interesting, and I feel that his work almost tells a story. The above images are taken from Indian Vogue. I think that his styling is really unique.
