The Era that Started it All (for me at least)

Everybody always has said that the fashion industry is endless. What goes around comes around. Through the years, designers have created collections that were inspired by decades from the 20th century. 319 more words


“Won’t somebody dance with me”

For because a man is alone, he is not for that reason also solitary;
just as though a man is among numbers, he is not therefore not solitary. 572 more words

影像反諷消費主義 David LaChapelle

翻看歐美時尚雜誌,很容易辨出美國時尚攝影師David LaChapelle的攝影作品,飽和的色彩、畫面充滿戲劇張力且有怪誕的美感,他的攝影不只是一張平面照片,而是一場充滿迷幻而浮誇的視覺盛宴。他鏡頭下的情色世界引人遐想,以紙醉金迷的畫面重現這世代的貪婪與消費主義,以影像探討流行文化的病態。

David LaChapelle生於1963年,成長於七十年代,那是個毒品與搖滾樂盛行的年代,他的童年就是在這樣的次文化中成長。他算是年少成名,17歲那年,得到藝術大師Andy Warhol賞識,為他創辦的《Interview》雜誌拍攝人物照片。這本雜誌關注時尚、藝術、娛樂等資訊,加上Andy Warhol名氣,至今仍是美國重要雜誌之一。在雜誌工作期間,David LaChapelle嘗試了多方面創作,1980年代初他拍攝下不少關於身體的黑白照片,1984年他在紐約303 Gallery舉辦展覽時的作品正是如此,而非如當下般絢爛的風格。到1980年代晚期,他以逐漸轉向鮮明色彩的攝影風格。他的作品往往獲得很好迴響,之後慢慢出現在《GQ》、《i-D》、《Rolling Stone》、《Vogue》等雜誌封面,因此David LaChapelle這名字也開始在Hollywood及名人圈子廣為人知,自己也與當時的著名街頭藝術家Keith Haring與Jean-Michel Basquiat成為了好朋友。
