I'm so happy to finally own this book having owned the other two in the trilogy (not artists and prostitutes obviously) and in my opinion this book is quite underrated. A few people and other reviewers consider this to be the weakest of the three books. However, i'd say this book definitely has a stronger artistic feel to it, through its playful composition of photographs on the pages and more cinematic looking photographs, whereas heaven and hell had a more digital 'presentation' feel to it, despite still being a great book.

Its pleasing to see a large number of photographs that are impossible to find by googling or browsing his website due to their age, such as spreads from The Face and other brilliant magazines. Its also interesting to see a stronger amount of black and white photographs, and the inclusion of the graphic silkscreen designs on the box cover. His muses Amanda and Pamela aren't present in this book apart from one of Pamela in a shop window, another obscure gem. It shows his vision before his tendencies to do big haired glamour pusses and people posing in brightly coloured rooms set in, and makes you wonder what other directions he could have gone in.

Having witnessed the awe-inspiring Artists & Prostitutes in the Pompidou in Paris and leafing through every single page, i am fairly happy in owning the trilogy of affordable books which contain roughly 75% of the contents of A&P.

For anyone who is a Lachapelle fan i strongly recommend this book since it helps view a broader spectrum of his styles and techniques, rather than his later more commericially successful work.

Mixture of early surrealism, capture of street photography to the bigger grandiose celeb poses. Warhol, Man Ray, Lee Miller and Fellini are the main influences and this again takes the image into a realm where those who are easily offended need to shy away now. Each colour image is saturated to bring out a dream world.

The images are in fact awesome.

Cracking book.

Very interesting and very good point of talk for those who have not seen his work before (just keep from young kids).

I have bought this as a present, but the person I bought it for, has a previous copy and really likes it, so I know he will like this.

Although i have yet to buy this book, it is definately on my wish list! David LaChapelle is an amazing photographer who captures people in a beautiful, surreal and (lets face it) outrageously camp style! He is the god of eclectic photography and never ceases to impress me with his imagery! This book is full of his stunning images and makes a fab gift or coffee table book. It also comes in a special presentation box. Buy it!
