David LaChapelle (Born in 1963, in Connecticut) is known for his over-the-top, unconventional portraits of famous people such Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga. Since the 1990s he has been staging images celebrate himself rather than the stars in a colorful juxtaposition of patterns and objects. His immediately recognizable handwriting is a characteristic that is both challenging and inviting here. Perhaps also because LaChapelle has followed the premise of his first employer – none other than Andy Warhol: you can do whatever you want, so long as the people look good.
