De Wilde’s father, Jerry De Wilde, gained popularity for his photos of Jimi Hendrix and other 1960’s music icons. De Wilde did not receive an education in photography, but rather, learned from her dad. She is now known for shooting a variety of famous musicians and album covers across a multitude of genres.
Cadillac believes De Wilde’s vivid portraiture gives her the perfect lens with which to capture the 2015 Escalade from a more artistic perspective, rather than the typical glamour shots of vehicles that are all too common these days. From the images and videos we’ve seen, De Wilde has done a superb job capturing the details of the new Escalade and the teasers have certainly left us wanting more.
The all-new luxury sport utility vehicle is set to be unveiled in New York on October 7 during a special event in the Altman Building. De Wilde is expected to attend the event, where her portrait series and full behind the scenes video of her visit to Cadillac will be shown.
