David LaChapelle. At Forte Belvedere. Photographies 1995-2007
This title offers a compelling look at the unique work of David LaChapelle, including his acclaimed take on Michelangelo - "The Deluge". Once described as 'the Fellini of Photography' by "New York Magazine", David LaChapelle has been at the forefront of the creative media revolution for more than two decades. His surreal, often humorous, yet always unique style has seen him produce some of the most iconic images in modern photography. "David LaChapelle" is a spectacularly illustrated overview of LaChapelle's best known, and most celebrated works - from his intimate and unusual portraits of international celebrities, through some of his most iconic works, to his latest collections, including "The Deluge" and "Awakened". Inspired by Michelangelo's depiction of "The Flood in the Sistine Chapel", the narrative story of the "Biblical Flood in Genesis", and William Blake's poem of the same name, these truly stunning works confirm LaChapelle's position as one of the most important photographers and artists of the 21st century.
