Patrick Hoelck has shot for such magazines as Vanity Fair, URB, Rolling Stone, Complex, Vibe and Inked.
Celebrities he’s photographed include Clint Eastwood, John Legend, Beyonce Knowles, Mister Cartoon, The Game, Pharell Williams, Will Farell and Kanye West.
“Patrick Hoelck’s photography resonates because his darkness does not hide, pervert, destroy, or malign. Instead, it emboldens, signifies, nurtures, resurrects an individual for who they are: sexuality and celebrity status are consequential of being human—of being a man or woman, actor or actress, singer or musician, model or cult personality; glamour and attitude are consequential of one’s pride and self-respect.”
