Fairfield, Connecticut

Birth year


David LaChapelle is a photographer and video/commercial/film director who works in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography, and is noted for his surreal, unique and often humorous style. LaChapelle has four published books of his photographs, including LaChapelle Land, Hotel LaChapelle, Heaven to Hell, and Artists and Prostitutes. All four books contain vivid and surreal portraits of celebrities. His documentary, "Rize" (2005) on the krumping style of dance in South Central Los Angeles, premiered at Sundance in 2005 and was released theatrically that summer. LaChapelle’s work has been described as surrealist, grotesque, shocking and ironic. His use of celebrities exaggerates aspects of their personalities and their personal lives.
