In the early 1990's David LaChapelle (b. 1964) ushered in a new era of fashion photography. He created images that were outrageous with his version of celebrity-obsessed hyper-color surrealism. 

As a teen LaChapelle worked at Studio54 as a busboy. He would meet Andy Warhol who would hire him to shoot for Interview magazine. Within a few years his images would appear in a host of magazines including GQ, Vanity Fair, The Face, Vogue and most consistently in Details.

One of the defining characteristics of LaChapelle during the Details years were the exuberant sets that the photos were staged in. This untitled work (aka "Bronx, Bedroom") is fascinating not only for its trio of signature characters, but the incredible details of their setting: the decorative masks and the matching fuchsia phone, the Farrah Fawcett clock, the giant bottle of ice-tea, the glass doves on a Yves Klein-blue carpet...LaChapelle's brilliance was to take random bits of kitsch and turn them into arresting decorative detail.
