Like no other artists, American photographer David LaChapelle is recognised for his artistic talent in photography by both the Fashion and Art worlds. Simultaneously exhibited in galleries and involved in the Fashion industry since the 1980’s, he created his very personal aesthetic that is instantly distinctive and inspired by street culture and Pop-Art. It showcases themes of transgender, S&M, Hollywood celebrities - all in bright and colourful fantasy worlds. Each photograph is a thorough concept: from setting to wardrobe, lighting, composition, colours, theme, mood; every detail counts and is under careful control of the artist. Over the years, David LaChapelle created iconic surrealistic images of his friends and idols involved in erotic and luxurious scenarios. Lately, he has manipulated with his photographs by deconstructing their elements and putting them together into a collage.
