The celebrated American photographer and video artist David LaChapelle is best known for his fashion photography and portraits of stars and celebrities. Over the course of his career, he has fascinated viewers with his rich, brightly coloured, often grotesque and even scandalous or obscene photographs. He quickly became renowned for his unique style and one of the most sought-after figures among celebrities. The present book portrays actors, singers, musicians and well-known celebrities of the American pop world in an expressive, colour-saturated manner. Among them are Tupac Shakur, Madonna, Amanda Lepore, Eminem, Philip Johnson, Lance Armstrong, Pamela Anderson, Lil’ Kim, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Taylor, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, Muhammad Ali and Britney Spears. LaChapelle is a fantastic storyteller, which he ingeniously translates into dreamlike visions. The artificial character of LaChapelle's photographs shaped the style of the 90s. - The slipcase with minimal traces of wear, otherwise nearly pristine condition.
