This title is updated with new images! Who is the brightest star of contemporary photography? Surely it's the inimitable David LaChapelle, whose singular style is unmistakable. During his remarkable career, he has photographed personalities as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Madonna, Amanda Lepore, Eminem, Philip Johnson, Lance Armstrong, Pamela Anderson, Lil' Kim, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Taylor, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, Muhammad Ali, and Britney Spears, to name just a few. All of these and many more feature in "LaChapelle: Artists and Prostitutes", along with some of the photographer's finest fashion editorial and advertising campaign work. Celebrating the entire range of his visionary photography, here are 800 pages of pure LaChapelle - a massive selection of his best work to date, drawn from across his entire career. Bursting with spectacle and drama, saturated with color, packed cover-to-cover with vibrant full-bleed images and dripping with sexual tension, this book contains the essential work of perhaps the most outrageously seductive photographer of our times.
All images are color-separated and reproduced in Pan4C, the finest reproduction technique available today, providing unequalled intensity and color range. For those who coveted the XL limited edition, this unlimited trade edition of "LaChapelle: Artists and Prostitutes" is not only updated to include some of his most recent images, but also keenly priced, and a must-have for anyone interested in contemporary photography.
