Characteristic of his oeuvre, each of the photographs compel the viewer with LaChapelles fantastically orchestrated, and sexually subversive, mise-en-scenes, with which his subjects take center stage as the protagonists of his colour-saturated and dystopian narratives.

Inspired by everything from art history to street culture, his compositions are characterised by an aesthetic of hyper-realism and highly saturated colour palette.
The box is slightly worn, especially on the top corner (see pic) and faded but the book itself is in near perfect condition. Just a few marks on the back from nights full of flicking through it. You can literally spend hours (and bottles of wine) looking at it! Its beyond beautiful and inspiring! Taschen 2006, Printed in Germany.All images 2005 Dave LaChapelle.
