Super famous US photographer, David LaChapelle's work makes me laugh and fills me with a sense of joy and wicked mischief. He has photographed almost everyone in the entertainment industry yet his work is always suprising and unique.
For the art world, the celebrated glamour photographer David LaChapelle (b. 1969) is a guilty pleasure. His sex-soaked color photos of celebrities and fashion models are just too high-key. Nothing is held back. The lily is not only gilded, but drenched in rhinestones, draped in haute couture and surrounded by the most exotic props imaginable. http://www.artnet.com/magazineus/features/barone/barone3-28-07.asp
