Works of large format (almost more than 22 ft for Deluge and Seismic Shift Series), will be exhibited for the first time in Uruguay. LaChapelle approaches photography in a more conceptual way in the series Landscapes & Gas Stations.
As in the above-mentioned Gas Stations and Landscape, He expresses a surreal consideration about the exploitation of Earth’s resources or as in Still Life and Earth Laughs in Flowers series, LaChapelle faces a topic that describes most of his artistic production, shows a critic point of view about the beauty perception.
Another section of the exhibition circuit will show a selection of photos dated before 2006. These are the most known works that made him famous all around the word. They depict a human universe, tinged with the colours and the lights of plastic, morbidly tied to the research of pleasure and excess.
A section that will gather all the portraits of celebrities, from music to fashion and movies, scenes based on religious themes with surrealistic touches, references of masterpieces of the art history and cinema, an artistic production defined by the chromatic saturation and movement, with which the American photographer reached his identifiable aesthetical style and influenced many artists of the following generations.
The exhibition will also feature a projection space, where his famous and amazing videos will be on view.
