Synopsis: David LaChapelle is the hottest young photographer working today. You've seen his celebrity portraits and fashion photography in Vanity Fair, Details, Paris Vogue, The Face, The New York Times Magazine, Arena, and on MTV. Now, for the first time in book form, more than 160 of his best and most outrageous images are brought together.
Originally trained as a fine artist, LaChapelle turned to photography as a teenager, first working professionally for Any Warhol's Interview magazine. His career has grown steadily every since, but it exploded with the development of his signature style in the early 1990s.
This book features LaChapelle's most striking photographs from the incomparably wide range of his work. A lively afterword by him provides a glimpse into his unique world. Legendary Japanese graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo designed the box and the book's covers, using elements from LaChapelle's pictures, especially for this book.
From Library Journal:
Exemplifying the blurring of lines between photojournalism, advertising, and art, these four collections of celebrity portraiture are less a record of high aesthetic achievement and more time capsules of the last decade's pop-culture infatuations. Observed side-by-side, the books highlight the photographers' individual styles and their strengths and weaknesses. Ritts's ability to capture his famous sitters' personalities at the height of expression reveal a self-consciousness in Corbijn's brooding, grainy portraits. But Ritts's Westonesque attempts at freezing the body as sculpture can seem pretentious next to LaChapelle's giddy, campy celebrations. Harkening back to the Hollywood photography of George Hurrell, Gorman's works stand apart for their simple elegance. The Gorman, LaChapelle, and Ritts books are all oversized and lavishly produced?perhaps a drawback, as the box LaChapelle is shipped in will be immediately discarded and the many fold-outs in Ritts will undoubtedly tear. Ultimately, these volumes will be of most interest to fans of the sitters. Art libraries should have the Ritts book?the official catalog of a controversial Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, retrospective?and the LaChapelle, whose vividly colorful works express the most individual style, if not depth. Public libraries that already have Ritts's last collection (Notorious, Bulfinch, 1992) can pass over this familiar work in favor of Gorman's genial portraits of today's stars.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
