Deitch Projects presented Artists and Prostitutes, a retrospective by David LaChapelle. LaChapelle is one of the most innovative and creative photographers working today. He has photographed some of the biggest celebrities and personalities in the worlds of music, entertainment, fashion and art. His work has been featured on numerous magazine covers around the world. In addition to still photography, LaChapelle has directed music videos for pop music stars, such as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and numerous others.
Artists and Prostitutes showcased 3 oversized DLP projection screens (15 feet x15 feet) featuring a collection of over 500 images taken throughout LaChapelle’s illustrious career. To add to the excitement, LaChapelle also installed a life-sized set in the gallery, allowing visitors to freely experience a slice of “LaChapelle’s world”.
On April 2, 2005, a select group of collectors and press was invited to watch the same set serve as the backdrop for a LaChapelle photo shoot featuring Pamela Anderson, Courtney Love and LaChapelle muse, Amanda Lapore. A selected image from this shoot graced the cover of LaChapelle’s upcoming book, which featured a collection of new photographs and followed in the steps of the hugely successful LaChapelleland and Hotel LaChapelle.
LaChapelle recently designed and directed The Red Piano, Elton John’s stage show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. That summer, the book Artists and Prostitutes was published by Taschen Books. Also later that year, David LaChapelle’s feature-length documentary Rize was released by Lion’s Gate Films. LaChapelle continues to photograph editorials for Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue and Interview Magazine.
