The Photographer of the Illusion
Reinterpreting his fashion and commercial works as well as the popular culture, the American artist David LaChapelle is being defined as the naughty boy and illusionist of photography after Newton. He is creating identity out of objects and object out of identities.

What is more, LaChapelle is famous for creating portraits of celebrities with the themes; fear, death, existence and belief. Since 1995 he has been awarded several times as the best photography artist of the year and his exhibitions have been held in many countries, from New York to Berlin, from China to France.

Madonna, Michael Jackson, Naomi Campbell, Uma Thurman, Angelina Jolie, David Beckham, Britney Spears, Leonardo Di Caprio, Paris Hilton, Elton John, Alexander McQueen and Lady Gaga are amongst the celebrites reflected from his object-glass.

David LaChapelle’s photographs including these celebrities and other fantastic works holding surreal traces, can be seen at the exhibition “Documents of Desire & Disaster”, between 10th December 2010 – 29th January 2011 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, Akaretler Sıraevler.
