A Photographer's Work of Art

We love art and often associate with it because it emcompasses a varied range that involves modes of expressions, activities and creations. Literature, music, film, paintings and photography are art.

So, we stumbled upon this which has kept us in awe. These series of work is by David LaChapelle, an imaginative photographer whose work often verges on the surreal. His ability to create scenes of extreme reality using rich and vibrant colors makes his work instantly recognizable and often imitated.

His images appeared in magazines such as Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone and has photographed personalities like Madonna, Eminem, Lance Armstrong, Pamela Anderson, Lil’ Kim, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Taylor, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, Muhammad Ali, Britney Spears, and the list goes on.
