This book has been a major influence in my art since I've gotten it. He is an amazing photographer. His images are so creative. He uses contemporary life, pop icons, surrealism, advertising, and just plain weirdness, and he blends them and mashes them and twirls them all together to come up with sparkling eye candy.

Recommends it for: brightly colored libidos
hyper-realism makes me feel like a giggly schoolgirl.
some of lachapelle's work make me want to drop bombs of creative love all over the place. ( i was going to make a fecal metaphor... but i wanted to go military instead. dont know if it was better. )

forget the celebrities, keep the genius.
My sister designed all this sets for the photos in this book so I am partial. A well curated selection of some of David's best work. He is a true visionary and artist.
essential images of contemplation for any poor sod whose mission is to describe the occult glamour of Hollywood and its various underworlds.
This is one of the best pop photobooks of the 90's...whimsical, creative and most of it is done without the aid of photoshop.
A brilliant collection of brilliant photographs. If you don't own this, you should!
I am so sick of him
