LaChapelled.

David Lachapelle


I was contemplating my next post and I suddenly thought of my favorite photographer, David LaChapelle. When it comes to his work, its truly raw. Raw in a precisely thought out way. I really appreciate the fact that he turns vulgar poses into something that is far from vulgar. 
The 2 photos below are probably my 2 favorite David LaChapelle.




He has 4 books, my favorite being the Hotel Lachapelle coffee table book from 1999. Unfortunately the book is far out of my price range and ive only been able to look at it while ive been at my local Barnes & Noble. Hopefully....one day....ill be able to own the greatest coffee table book of all time.

As I was reading this post, I thought about Hotel LaChapelle! I HAD to buy when I saw it years ago. It's actually sitting on my coffee table right now waiting on the accompaniment of Martin Margiela's newest book. LOVE...
