Known for his outrageous staged images, American photographer David LaChapelle is both revered and reviled in the fashion world. For three decades, LaChapelle has produced thought-provoking and groundbreaking imagery that often incorporates religious references with kitch stereotyping, creating portraits, stage and film works of celebrities and culture that have become iconic archetypes of America in the 21st century. The Groninger Museum in the Netherlands dedicates a retrospective to his work of over 70 significant pieces. They show LaChapelle's unique ability to connect themes from western civilization - from classical Renaissance to the future - with contemporary culture. Titled 'Good News for Modern Man', a Biblical reference, this exhibition is an experience of religious proportions.
From April 21st to October 28th
