Cedric Buchet was born in Paris in 1974, and is of both French and Danish descent. He moved to America at the age of 13 and studied philosophy at Vassar College.

His advertising clients have included Prada, Cacharel, Dior, Stella McCartney, Procter and Gamble, Hewlett Packard, Sega and Habitat. Recent clients include Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Elie Saab, Sonia Rykiel, Biotherm, Mango, Eres, Weill, Bergdorf Goodman, Piazza Sempione, and Cesare Paciotti. Cedric has shot editorials for magazines such as French Vogue, British Vogue, Vogue Hommes International, Harper’s Bazaar US, I-D, GQ Style, Man About Town, Harper’s Bazaar UK, Wonderland, V Magazine, 10 Magazine and Self Service.
Celebrity shoots include James Franco, David & Victoria Beckham, Demi Moore, Marion Cotillard, Christina Hendricks, Dakota Fanning, Angelica Houston and Debbie Harry and Olivia Wilde.
In 2002, he held his first solo exhibition at the Jousse-Entreprise Gallery in Paris, and in 2004 his work was prominently exhibited at the MOMA (New York) in the “Fashioning Fiction” exhibit, which was curated by Susan Kismaric. His work is now held in the permanent collection at the MOMA, Fond National d’Art Contemporain (Paris), as well as in private collections in Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
