Photographs by David LaChapelle
David LaChapelle was one of the hottest young photographers in his day. His photos have appeared in Vanity Fair, Details, French Vogue, The Face, Detour, The New York Times Magazine, Arena, and on MTV. The images he created were part sex, part satire, part fantasy—in a word, outrageous. This “mind-blowingly lavish compilation” (Paper magazine) features portraits of Drew Barrymore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Faye Dunaway, Andy Warhol, Tupac Shakur, Smashing Pumpkins, and many more. Packaged in a beautiful box designed by the legendary Japanese graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo, this book offers a truly entertaining visual experience.
