While working in photo laboratories, he began perusing leading fashion magazines to study the visual language and aesthetics of prestigious photographers. Subsequently, Demarchelier advanced to one of the world’s most famous fashion photographers. His relocation to New York in 1975 accompanied his international breakthrough.
