David LaChapelle Autographs "Heaven and Hell" Tonight
Winding up his colorful trilogy of outrageously beautiful volumes of photographs, famed artist David LaChapelle will be signing "Heaven and Hell" tonight at the Taschen Store in Beverly Hills.
In a series that started a decade ago with "LaChapelle Land" and improved with "Hotel LaChapelle" (1999), David wraps it up with a collection of images that contains nearly double the number of the previous two volumes.
LaChapelle, known for his eye-popping color and over-the-top themes, is also a well-known music video director who has worked with the likes of Mariah, Elton, and Blink; he gave us Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty", Gwen Stefani's "Rich Girl", Britney Spears' "Everytime", and J.Lo's tribute to Flashdance -- "I'm Glad" -- (which you can see after the jump).
The Taschen store is at 354 N. Beverly Drive. The event is free and will take place from 6pm - 7:30pm.
