Angelina Jolie photographed by David LaChapelle.
David LaChapelle, born March 11, 1963 in Fairfield, Connecticut, is a photographer and director who works in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography, and is noted for his surreal, unique, sexualized, and often humorous style.
LaChapelle’s work has been described as surrealist, grotesque, shocking and ironic. Ingrid Sischy, long-time editor of Interview magazine, has said there are three main aspects to his “strong and individualistic” photography: a sense of humour, political awareness and social awareness. His use of celebrities exaggerates aspects of their personalities and their personal lives.
