Garish, colorful, luscious, lavishly detailed, sculptural, often provocative, sometimes scandalous: that is how we can describe the impressive oeuvre of the American photographer David LaChapelle, who captures stars such as Madonna, Pamela Anderson, Michael Jackson, Björk, and David Bowie in photographic portraits, fashion photographs, or music videos.
Once a contract photographer, LaChapelle has long become an artist in his own right who confidently says, “I don’t see any difference between being a photographer and being an artist. I didn’t make those boundaries. If someone wants to think it’s art, that’s great, but I’ll let history decide.”
The Opening Reception will be held from 4 to 10 pm on Friday, August, 5th, 2011.
