Just arrived today and this mind-blowing book has forced me to put it down and think about what the image is trying to say 3 or 4 times and I've only just started it. A visual feast, riotous colour, immaculate composition - you name it and the cliché was created to describe this book.

Such an amazing collection of LaChapelle's artwork. It is not for a coffee table where children are near, but hay - it's amazing. Would reccomend it definetely.

There is certainly a lot of Helmut Newton here but taken to another level of the MTV all American steroids and silicone hip hop fast food generation.

Certain more shocking elements or at times a low resolution look bring to mind Terry Richardson, other more graphic are almost Guy Bourdin.

Popular culture, pop art, fine art, cult films, religious references, celebrities and sex fuse.

An incredible control and creation of even the finest details in set, wardrobe, makeup and styling that is the result of many days for many professionals and huge budgets come together to produce a unique world that is not just mere photoshop but usually all actually existed for the shoot in its full spray painted flowers glory.

David Lachapelle's work has been plagiarized by more than a few major celebrities in their pop videos (who I can't name for legal reasons) who should have hired him to direct their videos instead of the cheap photo-copiers (who have also copied Bourdin's work shamelessly).

Heaven to Hell is an essential purchase for anyone serious about their collection of contemporary photography books.

The book was ordered on Sunday and arrived Tuesday. Great service.
This book is physically huge. It's about a foot long and two inches thick. It is stuffed full of LaChapelle's images in full or double page glory.
Utterly brilliant.

This was bought as a christmas gift for a friend and she was so happy when she got it and spent a long time watching the photos and discussing it with us. It is truly and inspirational book with amazing photos. But it also gives you food for thought in different ways. I really recommend it!

I was finally given this book as a Christmas present after it had languished in my wish list for several years. EXACTLY what I was expecting - some of the shots I know anyway from my 90s magazine addiction phase....... Beautiful, stylish, revolting, seriously disturbed, tasteless - brilliant!

As with most talented people David treads that thin line between genius and madness. His images are, to say the least, thought provoking. This book is amazing value considering the quality and quantity of images, a true coffee table book. Visitors can not help but dip into the rich tapestry of images. Truly wonderful.
