Item description for David LaChapelle by Davide Faccioli...
In David LaChapelle land, Pee-Wee Herman is a Martian crash landed into a pastel suburb; L'il Kim becomes the ultimate status symbol, tattooed in the Louis Vuitton pattern; an elegant half-dressed woman wakes up in the untouched remains of an otherwise completely obliterated building; Madonna rises from pink waters as a mystical dragon princess; two women stand in a monochromatic red bathroom, one about to dig into the tub in which the other lies amidst pools of spaghetti; a woman and a horse carcass share a bed; Pamela Anderson hatches out of an egg; and Alexander McQueen burns down the castle dressed as the Queen of Hearts. It's all so much hyper-reality and fun park America gone surrealistically wrong--but in such an attractive way. Witness the workings of the photographer of our zeitgeist.

Reviews - What do customers think about David LaChapelle?
Awesome, but short... Jan 13, 2007
The pix are (as one would expect from LaChapelle) amazing. Visually intriguing, vibrant, eye catching, and entertaining, the book was a great purchase, but it does fall short on quantity. I gave it as a Christmas gift and my recipient paged thru the whole thing standing by the fireplace immediately after opening. Be prepared to greatly enjoy it and be disappointed at the same time. Or at least in a very short span of time.
One of the Foremost Artistic Geniuses of our Time Sep 28, 2004
David LaChapelle goes beyond images. His work transports you to another realm where there are no boundaries, no guilt, and no limits. His imagination is captivating bringing life and new adventures with each photograph. I love his work because it rocks the boat. The super high quality images are an unbinding, mesmerizing and absolutely inspiring. His creativity is so multi-dimensional, and multi-faceted. This is no ordinary artist. His work will take you on an extraordinary adventure with every page and image. Simply outstanding!
