Until he retired to a farm in Hawaii in 2005, David LaChapelle was the highest paid commercial photographer in the world.
Now what does he get up to, you ask? Why photographing gas stations and oil refineries in the jungle of course. He’s spent the last three years working on his latest project, “Land Scape/ Refineries and Gas Stations”, and here it is in all its luminous glory.
Yes, they’re actually pictures. Not paintings. Not miniature dioramas built in LaChapelle’s studio. The series is now on display at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York. Click here for more information.
