Book is in an illustrated box which has black titling on hot-pink edges, reviewer's comments on back. Book includes a LaChapelle photograph, laid in, that does not appear in the book: a street scene with a blonde model in police regalia; book also includes a brief note on a scrap of paper, signed by Lachapelle, concerning his work with Kelis. With the exception of some very minor shelfwear and a light dimple near the lower corner of the first approximately thirty pages from page-turning, this handsome book is in great shape. Box has light wear to upper corners, lower corners are split, light shelfwear, various pressure marks front and back, a few of which on the back have broken through the glossy surface; box is still in great shape - clean and bright.

About this title

Synopsis:

An all-new selection from the outrageous "enfant terrible" of contemporary photography, this volume is even sexier, funnier, and more fantastical than the bestselling "LaChapelle Land." 158 full-color photos.

Review:

This second boxed book of David LaChapelle's photographs (LaChapelle Land is the first) ends with a beautifully written commentary by LaChapelle himself offering readers insight into the book and his photographic process: "And when people come for a photo session with me, they are giving themselves over, sort of checking in. When you stay at a hotel you're living for one day in a place where you don't normally live. That feeling can be true with photographs, too." LaChapelle's photographs can be spotted a mile away. If you read magazines, you know his work: it jumps out like none other with the expertly created environments and alternate realities in which he places his subjects. These universes are complete and constantly evolving to fit dynamic personalities. Hotel LaChapelle is filled with a celebrity cast as well as what LaChapelle calls "characters on the peripheries." The colors are as vibrant and inorganic as the settings that encapsulate his models. In this world, heads are sewn onto different-colored bodies, a nurse holds a face with a pair of tweezers, Marilyn Manson works as a school crossing guard, Madonna is a Krishna goddess, Leonard DiCaprio becomes Marlon Brando, and Ewan McGregor's face peers into a dollhouse while his body bleeds from a gunshot wound fired from Barbie's diminutive gun. The list goes on, and what it says about LaChapelle's vision is that excess is never too much. --Amra Brooks
