LACHAPELLE LAND by David LaChapelle.
"There's a tradition of celebrity portraiture that attempts to uncover the 'real person' behind the trappings of their celebrity. I am more interested in those trappings,' says LaChapelle. Indeed, LaChapelle pairs Hollywood icons with detritus, baubles, the sacred and the profane, alongside delirious explosions of pomp and glitter. In LaChapelle Land, he wields color like a sword, taking us through a dream-like Disneyland simulation ride of a hyper-sensationalized consumer-drunk cosmos, where we're left reeling, elbows crooked and mouths agape. His images are bizarre and gorgeous, sometimes frightening, always entertaining.
