Packed with astonishing, colour-saturated, and provocative images, LaChapelle Heaven to Hell is an explosive compilation of new work by the influential photographer. The strength of LaChapelle's work lies in its ability to focus the lens of celebrity and fashion toward more pressing issues of societal concern. His images call into question our relationship with gender, glamour, and status. Using his trademark baroque excess, LaChapelle inverts the consumption he appears to celebrate, pointing instead to apocalyptic consequences for humanity itself.
