David LaChapelle

Meat * Las Vegas Story
Las Vegas, FLAUNT, 1998

As legend would have it, LaChapelle took his first photograph at the age of six while on vacation in Puerto Rico. The image was of his mother posing, drink in hand, on a hotel balcany, outfitted in a Frederick's of Hollywood bra top adorned by gold belt buckles.

Later,working as a bus boy at Studio 54 in the early 80's, LaChapelle made contact with the glamorous world that would embrace him.

If all goes according to plan, the rest will be History.
