Born January 23, 1956 in Brooklyn, New York, Sante D’Orazio transformed his Italian-American, Catholic upbringing into a scandalous, trademark style celebrated in the fashion and advertising worlds. D’Orazio presented an alluring combination of sex and celebrity: a world populated by beautiful Supermodels (in various stages of undress), megawatt actresses like Angelina Jolie or Sharon Stone casually lounging on a sofa or by the sea, shirtless rock stars like Axl Rose and hyperbolic bombshells like Pamela Anderson. Through D’Orazio’s lens, modern celebrities became mythological beings, reflecting the values of our idol¬obsessed times: Eternal Youth. Naked Beauty. Rock ‘n’ Roll. In a career spanning over twenty years, D’Orazio documented The Glamorous Life — always with a wink from behind the camera — for some of the world’s greatest publications, beginning with Italian Vogue in 1981 and including Interview, Vanity Fair, French Vogue, Mirabella, Allure, GQ and Vogue. Sante D’Orazio has exhibited widely in museums and galleries internationally and has published several books. He lives in New York City.
