I think David Lachapelle has his place and time but he doesn't do anything for me these days. I think his tawdry, plastic images are rather out of sync and out of date. But I guess we can't blame the man for having a signature style.

He doesn't get much high profile work anymore, does he? It's been awhile since I've seen him published anywhere.

Amanda Lepore snorting lines of diamonds doesn't do it?

The utter contrived perverse fabulousness of it is enough fodder to make it an aesthetic pleasure.

Coke joke, darling.

It's really a shame he has become somewhat of an obscure name although his influence is certainly felt through various contemporary artists. That polished veneer of depravity, and subtle malice.

The only exhibition was that Exhibit A which was a posthomous event.

Fun!!! His pictures are soo saturated with color. I it.

David doesn't need to shoot fashion edits anymore, he's directing lame *** music videos instead (I.e Britney Spears-Everytime ). He also directed No Doubt-Its My Life, but at least that resembled something he would shoot as a fashion edit. I'm sure he's getting paid much more to direct videos than shooting fashion edits.... Its a shame.

I used to really like his stuff. Some of his photos are so original and cool-looking, but I feel like a lot of times he tries so hard to make a schocking/disturbing/weird photograph, that the images are just stupid and gross.

No no no, it's not the coke reference.....it's Amanda's nipple.

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Amanda without a nipple showing.

Really? I wasn't sure if she even had nipples.

the magazine cover in masssive size ... is in the windows of the heatherette studio..
i dun understand studios are meant to be light n airy.. natural light n all that jazz
i dont particularly rate that cover very much at all... amongst all his other more spectacular work.. i would actually say it is his worst piece of all the stuff i have seen... i have his portfolio (german magazine/book) i have the hotel la chapelle book... i have loads of issues of the face i-d etc etc mags his work is in...
his best work was in a mag...in my opinion...
a photo shoot using sports wear...
with naomi campbell ... n 2 male hunks

Me three, I adore Bourdin
As far as David, i've never really been a fan. I just remembered reading this a while back and thought it was hilarious. Vince Gallo on DL : "What happened to New York? Remember the old days when a girl like Connecticut Chloe Sevigny would be lucky to blow for a living? David LaChapelle was just an average, purse-snatching, coke-whore, cleaning up Studio 54?"
