5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb Portraits!, 4. Juli 2007

This is one of the best books of portraits that it has been my pleasure to view.

Before going further, let me observe that the book contains much female nudity that would earn an "R" rating if this were a motion picture.

Glenn O'Brien in the book's introduction captures the essence of the book well, "The beauty standard is being raised once again."

Whether the subjects are beautiful (and many are) or not, the result is the same -- a deep look into the personality and character of the model done in large, vivid detail in wonderfully contrasting duotone. One of the best tests for this book is to compare the celebrity images you see here with others you have seen of these same people. These images are more warm, more revealing, and more fun to see. Mr. Demarchelier has a light touch that gets out the happiest version of a person. You'll find yourself laughing and smiling your way through this collection, for sure.

The portraits displayed here are uniformly of very high quality, and provide nice contrasts of subjects (nose rings, boulders, children, and elephants among the beautiful people).

Here are some of my many favorites:

Nude, St. Barthelemy, 1994

Nude, St. Barthelemy, 1989

Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales, London, 1993

Warren Beatty, Annette Bening and their daughter, Los Angeles, 1994

Versailles gardens, Versailles, France, 1994

Gianni Versace, Paris, 1992

Nude, New York, 1995

Corbassiere, Paris, 1994

Helena Christensen, New York, 1992 (second image)

Cindy Crawford, Leh, India, 1989

Jasper Johns and Leo Castelli, New York, 1993

Roy Lichtenstein, New York, 1993

Naomi Campbell, New York, 1990

Isabella Rosselini, New York, 1994

Robin Williams (4), New York, 1990

Robert De Niro, New York, 1990

Sisters, St. Barthelemy, 1991

Christy Turlington, New York, 1990

Alice Dodd, New York, 1994

Natasha Kinski, New York, 1993

Warren Beatty from "Dick Tracy," Los Angeles, 1989

Elton John, Paris, 1992

Janet Jackson, Miami, Florida, 1993

Arthur Demarchelier, New York, 1991

Patrick and Mia Demarchelier and their three sons, New York, 1987

Meg Ryan, New York, 1994

Claudia Schiffer, St. Barthelemy, 1991

Paul Newman, Beacon, New York, 1994

Elle Macpherson, New York, 1990

Cindy Crawford, New York, 1990

After you look closely at these images, notice how lines and flaws provide balance and perspective in the same way that perfect figures provide proportion. How can you create more waves of enjoyable symmetry?

Drink deeply from the bubbling joy of humanity!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A masterpiece from a prominent fashion photographer, 26. Januar 2000
Von 
J. Lizzi (Costa Mesa, CA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
With this wonderful depiction of form and expression, Demarchelier shows his mastery of presenting the face, the body, and the mood through an incredible feel for lighting and contrast. His adeptness at capturing the nude female form brings out incredible beauty without the slightest hint of pornography.
What you get: 82 black-and-white photographic plates, most of which are formatted to fill the entire page. With a few exceptions, all were taken from the late-80s to the mid-90s, and about half were taken from fashion magazines or designer ads. Most are of people, the majority of whom are recognizable (to me) celebrities. About one-forth feature the nude or semi-nude female body. For good measure, a couple pictues featuring members of the Demarchelier family are also included. All photographs are presented "stand-alone," with no notes or credits; however, this information is clearly referenced at the back of the book.
What you see: a straightforwardness of subject matter. Where other photographers might dazzle by snaring a moment in time from an event (e.g., Robert Doisneau), Demarchelier presents his subjects with no mystery as to what the viewer is to behold: the intricacies of the baobab branches in contrast to its massive trunk; the variations in lighting between two figures, one illuminated, one silhouetted, seated in front of a window; or the calm, confident gaze of Christy Turlington wearing only a tangle of wet hair, and a sheet around her hips. The side-by-side photos of Helena Christensen are perhaps the best of her ever, as may be the one of Turlington. Not to forget the face: the shots of Versace, César, Corbassière and Nastassja Kinski are absolute gems. I'm having a hard time puting this book down, and I'd love to know who that is hanging from the tree on the front cover.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous Black & White Fashion, Portraits, Nudes, 23. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I'm floored that this book is not more popular! It clearly is not getting enough exposure, as it is currently one of the best photo books available today.
Although Patrick Demarchelier is known as a fashion photographer, most of the images of top models and celebrities in this book are really portaits, many of them nudes. These photos are masterpeices of B&W portaiture. Among the great photographers who have published photo books, there are less than 5 I know that are in Demarchelier's league.
There are so many great images in this book. The nudes of Helena Christensen and Cindy Crawford are especially superb. Incidentally, contact sheets from the nudes of Cindy Crawford were recently expositioned by DeMarchelier.
If you appriciate great black and white photography, you will probably love this book.
If you are interested in looking at photos of celebrities, you will probably love this book.
If you are offended by nudity, even artistic nudes, you should probably avoid this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Physical perfection here captured by a stunning artist., 20. September 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Something about these photos nourishes my soul. I am not a photographer, don't even own a Brownie camera, simply noticed the book at a check-out counter in a bookstore. The cover alone is worth 100 times the price........ a perfect nude dangling from an enormous tree limb that hangs out over the ocean. Cindy Crawford? Maybe. It's lyrical, stunning, art of the finest sort. . Patrick Demarchelier makes an incredibly profound statement with each photo. Buy it simply to soothe your soul........over and over and over and over again

These photos by Patrick are really great. His talent is unique. The pictures of celebrities and well know people are simple yet full of meaning and reveal personality aspects. The random photos are wonderful. I love it and highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfection through simplicity, 22. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book features the most perfect photograph of Christy Turlington ever taken. It also features a stunning cover--not to be missed and an amazing photo of Cindy Crawford. The photo of Turlington alone was worth the price of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein preiswertes Buch?! Ein sehr gutes Buch, 13. Februar 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Patrick Demarchelier: Glamour (Stern Portfolio Library of Photography) (Taschenbuch)
Wenn man bedenkt wie unerschwinglich teuer manch andere Demarchelier Fotobildbände sind, insbesondere sein Prachtband FORMS, so ist man bei den STERN-Portfolios immer wieder erstaunt, welch gute Druck- und Layout-Qualität man für faires Geld erwarten kann. Der Demarchelier-Band macht hier keine Ausnahme und zählt mit Sicherheit zu den Top 5 Bildbänden der Stern-Reihe. Alle wirklich wichtigen Demarchelier-Fotos sind enthalten; in einer Qualität die manch anderer Band vermissen läßt. Schön, daß auch noch einige neuere Aufnahmen mit dabei sind. Eines der Bücher, die mit Sicherheit bald vergriffen sein werden.
