David LaChapelle

February 10, 2010 Comments off

David LaChapelle started out his photography career in New York City in the 1980’s where he was enrolled in the Tisch School of Visual Arts (Lady Gaga also attended this prestigious Art School).  He has photographed for both Italian and French Vogue Magazine, Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone, Interview, and Flaunt among others.   He has also exhibited his photographs in prestigious galleries like the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York, Jablonka Galerie in Berlin as well as the Palazzo delle Esposizioni and Palazzo Reale in Italy and Mexico City’s Museo del Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso.

I mentioned Lady Gaga earlier not only because they both attended the same Art school (New York’s Tish School of the Arts), read about it here,  but because of the influence of his photographic style on her music videos.

But also notice how David LaChapelle references photographers like Sandy Skoglund, specially in his photograph of Elton John and Anna Nicole Smith.
