DAVID LACHAPELLE

unknown-1 unknown-2

Following on from my initial starting of Lil Kim’s research, Ive come across photographer, David Lachapelle, who i know to be most famous for his images of iconic women throughout recent centuries. Little did i realise before, that Lil Kim was a major influential model for his photography and he helped to concentrate viewers on the rise of feminism through her pictures. I loved his colour palette and how he light-heartedly plays with the theme of feminism/sexism through this. He makes the issues in which women from this industry face, such as body / clothing problems, seem sophisticated and high-end – instead of the stereotypical evolvement. Im definitely going to try and achieve his style in my work so i can relate the hiphop industry between the two.
