David LaChapelle



David LaChapelle is one of my all time favorite photographers. He works in film and advertising and has published several books that showcase his talent of staging controversial scenes using famous people. His book titles include: LaChapelle Land, Hotel LaChapelle, Heaven to Hell, and Artists and Prostitutes. Mr. LaChapelle also directed Elton John’s Las Vegas show at Caesars Palace, The Red Piano.



Some of his more recent shows include: Rape of Africa (with Naomi Campbell), Jesus Is My Homeboy and Artist and Prostitutes.

I agree, amazing artist. Those last three look more like paintings than photographs.

elton really needs to rethink his whole toupee situation.

Everton- I agree- My husband said the same thing- I think they might be photographs of images of his photograph- It was very hard to find good quality photos to share.
Sherri- You don't like toupees?

I LOVE David LaChapelle!! I actually met him a few months ago and saw an AMAZING art exhibit he had in Taipei. I'm so in love with his works - so provocative, culturally-relevant, artistic. He's amazing.
(I was so happy to see this post. David LaChapelle was the topic of my very first blog post :)

David LaChapelle is so unique!!! I can't say I'm a fan of each and every wrk of his, but I admire his style - when you see his work you just always know who shot it!!

Krystal said...

Interesting that you mention the couch surfing thing because I've been thinking about it! Do they let couples host? For some reason I thought they didn't - maybe that's a different service. It does sound like you had awesome experiences...I feel like I would be so nervous though! My friend and I are supposed to take a trip at the end of the year and she does couch surfing, I guess...so I will get the experience with her and see how it goes! I think I signed up and clicked on would be up for meeting for coffee...

Jayne said...

Hi! Thanks for finding me. Your "couch surfing" is definitely inspiring. But since we have the in-laws with us, I think we will save that one for next time!
