David LaChapelle. Lost and Found – Good News, Art Edition

by Books

A two-volume Art Edition with three signed prints by David LaChapelle XL.

Nurtured under Warhol’s wing in the ’80s, hailed as the Fellini of photography in the ’90s, emerging from a retreat in rural Hawaii in the noughties, David LaChapelle has spent the past three decades shooting some of the most luminous stars of his generation and transforming the realms of fashion and celebrity, sex and style with his own distinct, unorthodox aesthetics. In this exclusive Art Edition, the artist’s first publication in a decade, TASCHEN presents two defining periods in LaChapelle’s career: his rise to stardom in the white heat of ’80s New York, and his creative renaissance following his “disappearance” from the fashion scene, post-2006. Volume 1, Lost + Found, traces LaChapelle’s emergence through Warhol’s Interview magazine and his ascent to the status of global icon in the fashion world.

Meanwhile, Good News explores LaChapelle’s spiritual and artistic revival following his retreat to a rural idyll in West Maui, Hawaii. This Art Edition represents a typographical map to a dizzyingly creative mind, presenting over 300 unpublished works to trace LaChapelle’s career through his very own lens. Along the way, we encounter such high-voltage subjects as Miley Cyrus, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Tupac, and Naomi Campbell, as well as LaChapelle’s stylistic experimentation throughout the years, spanning classical, Baroque, and Pop art elements. We follow his ascent to the apex of glamour and his subsequent thematic exploration of consumerism, redemption, and spirituality.
