?The only link between Andy Warhol and J-Lo.? ?GQ, London, on David LaChapelle
Barely out of high school, David LaChapelle was offered his first professional job by Andy Warhol to shoot for Interview magazine, and his career has gone steadily uphill since. LaChapelle has photographed the world's hottest celebrities for magazines ranging from Vanity Fair to Rolling Stone, Italian Vogue and i-D. His portraits and art photographs have been exhibited at the Staley-Wise, Toni Shafrazi, and Deitch Galleries in New York, the Fahey-Klein Gallery in California as well as internationally at Art Trend in Austria, Camerawork in Germany, Sozzani and Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Itay, and the Barbican Museum in London. LaChapelle has also directed music videos for artists such as Moby, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and The Vines. His burgeoning interest in film saw him make the short documentary Krumped, an award-winner at Sundance from which he developed RIZE, the feature film released worldwide in 2005 to huge critical acclaim. American Photo recently ranked him as one of the top ten "Most Important People in Photography." His limited-edition book LaChapelle, Artists & Prostitutes was also published by TASCHEN.
