Published In: Germany, 04 November 2006
The third installment of LaChapelle's trilogy LaChapelle Heaven to Hell is the long-awaited third volume in an exhilarating trilogy that began with LaChapelle Land (1996) and continued with the infamous Hotel LaChapelle (1999). Packed with astonishing, color-saturated, and provocative images, those titles both became instant collector's items and have since gone through multiple printings. Featuring almost twice as many images as its predecessors, LaChapelle Heaven to Hell is an explosive compilation of new work by the visionary photographer. Since the publication of Hotel LaChapelle, the strength of LaChapelle's work lies in its ability to focus the lens of celebrity and fashion toward more pressing issues of societal concern. LaChapelle's images?of the most famous faces on the planet, and marginalized figures like transsexual Amanda Lepore or the cast of his critically acclaimed social documentary Rize?call into question our relationship with gender, glamour, and status. Using his trademark baroque excess, LaChapelle inverts the consumption he appears to celebrate, pointing instead to apocalyptic consequences for humanity itself. While referencing and acknowledging diverse sources such as Renaissance, art history, cinema, The Bible, pornography, and the new globalized pop culture, LaChapelle has fashioned a deeply personal and epoch-defining visual language that holds up a mirror to our times. Sumptuously packaged in the trilogy's boxed hardcover format, LaChapelle Heaven to Hell is a must-have edition for anyone interested in contemporary photography. It is also keenly priced, especially for those who have coveted TASCHEN's limited edition LaChapelle, Artists & Prostitutes. Theartist: Barely out of high school, David LaChapelle was offered his first professional job by Andy Warhol to shoot for Interview magazine, and his career has gone steadily uphill since. LaChapelle has photographed the world's hottest celebrities for magazines ranging from Vanity Fair to Rolling Stone, Italian Vogue and i-D. His portraits and art photographs have been exhibited at the Staley-Wise, Toni Shafrazi, and Deitch Galleries in New York, the Fahey-Klein Gallery in California as well as internationally at Art Trend in Austria, Camerawork in Germany, Sozzani and Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Itay, and the Barbican Museum in London. LaChapelle has also directed music videos for artists such as Moby, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and The Vines. His burgeoning interest in film saw him make the short documentary Krumped, an award-winner at Sundance from which he developed RIZE, the feature film released worldwide in 2005 to huge critical acclaim. American Photo recently ranked him as one of the top ten ?Most Important People in Photography.? His limited-edition book LaChapelle, Artists & Prostitutes was also published by TASCHEN.
