GET David LaChapelle’s Lost + Found, Part I and Good News, Part II

November 13, 2017

For any kid who came of age in the late-nineties and had an interest in aesthetics, David LaChapelle was the ultimate—a photographer and sometime music video director with a vibrant, twisted, excessive way of converting his innermost fantasies and social commentaries concerning cultural icons into outlandish imagery. His Hollywood-centric work was fun, weird, over-the-top, and while many were wary to call it art, it could easily be pegged as pop culture imitating life and vice versa. More recently, he’s been labeled the Fellini of photography.

After a lengthy hiatus, LaChapelle has released a duo of books serving as the final installments of his five-book anthology, launched with 1996’s LaChapelle Land (Drew Barrymore behind bars) and followed with 1999’s Hotel LaChapelle (Leonardo DiCaprio as James Dean) and 2006’s Heaven to Hell (Michael Jackson as an angel). The fourth volume unveils a decade’s worth of never-before-seen work that leads the viewer “into paradise and the sublime,” starring Pamela Anderson, Julian Assange, David Bowie, Hillary Clinton, Amy Winehouse, Rihanna, the Kardashians and the Jenners, just a few on the list of famous names. Publisher Taschen calls them simply “a visual record of the times we live in.”

You’ll be able to buy both books separately at Taschen. Lost + Found, Part I will be available in November for $70.
