“I try to understand the idea of the picture, or even provide an idea if it is personal work,” he says, “I judge everything I do, by asking me if it helps with the idea or not.”

Ruven Afanador! Columbian photographer, he started his career between NY and Milan. in the nineties his photography revamped Vogue, New York Times and Vanity Fair editorials. Ruven photography is evocative and full of fantasy, with a focus on the garments in pretty much every shot. He is represented by Art Dept Agency .
I love his non-fashion black & white prints but i think he also developed a very special style in fashion photography especially with strong colours.
Since 1992 he has worked with Harper's Bazaar, becoming its premier photographer. Demarchelier was awarded the contract for the 2005 Pirelli Calendar. Demarchelier is referenced in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada, as the dragon lady, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), tells Andy (Anne Hathaway), "Get me Demarchelier!" leaving her utterly confused, and the first assistant Emily replying, "I have Patrick!"
