he studied at the art student's league and north carolina school of arts.
at age of 19, mr. lachapelle went to new york where he met andy warhol.
he began his photography career created by warhol. david lachapelle is a photographer
who tends to create his own visionary world, rather than reproduce what's visible in the world,
a photography style that can be compared to no one. david lachapelle has evolved his photography
into an idiosyncratic and highly personal combination of reportage and surrealism.
lachapelle is one of photography's brightest stars, bringing high intensity, larger than life images
to the pages of magazines worldwide (as i-D, arena, the new york time magazine, rolling stones,
vogue, the face, the london sunday times and vanity fair).
