In 2006, the Fellini of photography David LaChapelle went off the grid, moved to a nudist colony in West Maui, Hawaii, and started over. Good News is the aptly-named second volume of LaChapelle’s first publication in a decade, celebrating the creative renaissance of one of the world’s influential pop culture photographers. Picking up where Lost + Found left off, LaChapelle sets the tone with his Deluge (2006) series, which marks the end of a dark era characterized by consumerism and hyper-sexuality. We then follow his rich artistic renewal through the photographer’s own lens: over 180 unpublished works trace his thematic exploration of spirituality, redemption, and human existence. Good News is an intimate glimpse into LaChapelle’s personal spiritual revolution, spanning across classic series like Angels, Saints and Martyrs (1984) to completely new works like Paradise (2017), with vertiginous cultural icons like Courtney Love, Tupac, Paris and Michael Jackson, Lana Del Rey, Pamela Anderson, Miriam Makeba and Elizabeth Taylor.

About the Author

David LaChapelle

Highly regarded as an artist as well as a fashion and celebrity photographer, LaChapelle landed his first big break photographing for Interview magazine, after befriending Andy Warhol. He went on to shoot covers and editorials for publications GQ, i-D, The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, The Face, Vanity Fair, Vogue Italia, and Vogue Paris. A pop art sensibility runs through his work, as well as a wry and subversive humor, which often incorporates social commentary on themes of fame, gender, glamour, and status.
