David LChapelle, born in 1963, began to take photographies in the secondary school. At the age of 18 years, at the end of years 70, one moved of Carolina of the North until the part this of New York. Nowadays LChapelle still resides in the Great Apple, where I influence totally its photographic style where images of models and celebrities of an emaciated and real way are emphasized since he as any other young person crossed the suburbs, smoked marijuana and did everything what marks the people of its generation. In his photographies it is possible to be found very well all the style and fashion of past generations and, clearly, which influences to the present generations. The work of David LChapelle has been set out so much at national level as international.
Their publications include two books: LChapelle Land and LChapelle Hotel where their better artistic works can be appreciated. LChapelle is famous by their showy, outlandish, grotesque ones and empty pictures of the main celebrities of music and Hollywood, thus always affirm that it has dice everything in removing its art ahead, but now only takes photographies from the main artists of the world, like Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga. LChapelle as professional photographer is interested in creating in his images and graphical products different types of paradoxes between the celebrities and the life from the common one. By this raznsiempre shows the celebrities victims of the excesses, the disasters, glamour and the beauty. The critics have been during long time divided on their artistic and creative value. It has denominated ” the Fellini of fotografa” , because it always tries to expose to the celebrities to ironic and ridiculous pantomima in which one is to respresentar the true human and worldly value of those people who have everything in their hands.
But really the work of LChapelle is not due to consider specifically as it photographs fashionable, all their material and the photos of models are presented/displayed like true iconographic art by their irreverent assemblies, the graphical compositions and a language that is easy to understand and to include/understand by the people of common. This way, during the past few years, LChapelle has moved away of the commercial work to concentrate in the beautiful arts. While it maintains his visual style unique, this new direction as much puts in relief the interest and the understanding by the contemporary practice of the photography and the history of the art.
