I don't mind. Take me to i-D.co anyway

As a young kid, all Patrick Demarchelier wanted to do was have fun and ''maybe go to Paris''. But, after receiving a Kodak camera for his seventeenth birthday, and subsequently taking some snapshots of his fellow schoolmates, Patrick found his calling. Moving to Paris in 1960, he began work as Hans Feurer's assistant, eventually catching the exceptionally fashionable eye of Condé Nast's Alexander Liberman, who promptly flew him to New York. Today Patrick is one of the most established photographers in the world, working with practically every publication, including, of course, i-D. As well as shooting Hana Soukupova for The Iconic Issue, September 2003,he also shot covers for The Beach Issue, March 2003, and, most recently, The Just Kids Issue, pre-fall 2012, featuring a very sultry, and very naked, Meghan Collison. On top of all this, Patrick shot the 2005 and 2008 editions of the Pirelli calendar and was personal photographer to the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
