David Lachapelle


David Lachapelle is an american photographer, who reached popularity in the early 90’s, after he’s offered a job by Andy Warhol himself at the“Interview Magazine”.  At the end of the decade, Lachapelle was already the “It” photographer of the pop pantheon, while every pose of his photos was becoming more outrageous."I'm sure there are people who are shocked by his work, or remain uncomfortable by his work. It's loud and brassy and it's in-your-face"  director of the International Center of Photography, Willis Hartshorn, said. He has made portaits for most of the living artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Elton John, Keith Richards, Christina Aguileira, Gene Simmons, Micheal Jackson (well this one not really living) and many many others. Postmodern, provocative, sensual and someone would say blasphemous, he's for sure one of the most visionary photographers living. More after the break, If you like his works you can always check his rich galery
