David LaChapelle is recognised as one of the most important photographers of our time. He is one of the rare photographers able to transcend the barriers between fine art and commercial photography, often while communicating a profound social message. His hyper-realistic images are inspired by everything from social issues and political climates, to street culture and art history, to immortality and the metaphysical.

LaChapelle’s career, spanning more than 30 years, has seen him photograph some of the most famous faces in the world including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Eminem, Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Kanye West and Lady Gaga, to name just a few. His work is part of the public collections of institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
