David LaChapelle

I went with my class to fotografiska museet in Stockholm today to see the David LaChapelle exhibition. It was really excellent! I felt pretty drained afterwards. The exhibition comprised 250 images as well as behind the scenes videos and music videos he has done. I really loved it! I’ve not been a great fan of art photography, but perhaps it’s time to change opinion.

The behind the scenes videos made it clear that David’s images are actually staged, not digitally manipulated (to any great extent anyway). This makes it even more impressive in my mind.

Go see it if you can!
