On Thursday 17th September 2009 the Sebastian Guinness Gallery, in association with Canon, Treasury Holdings and Fred Torres Collaborations, will launch an exhibition titled ‘American Jesus’ showcasing the photographic works by one of the world’s most respected contemporary photographers, David Lachapelle.
Lachapelle, a fine art photographer and director, is renowned for his iconic pop and celebrity images that for over the past two decades have continuously graced the pages of the leading fashion and entertainment magazines such as Vanity Fair, The Face, Rolling Stone, Vogue and Interview. Mixing glamour with surreal and comic fantasy, Lachapelle has created many memorable and striking images of luminaries such as Elizabeth Taylor, Pamela Anderson, Madonna, Elton John, Tupac Shakur and Britney Spears. His directing credits include music videos for artists such as Moby, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez.
Lachapelle’s stage work includes Elton John’s The Red Piano concert which recently ended a five year run at Ceaser’s Palace in Las Vegas and which will be staged at Dublin’s 02 for one night on October 30th.
Due to the extensive images on exhibit, the David Lachapelle ‘American Jesus’ exhibition will be located at Connaught House, 1 Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
This exhibition will be open to the public from the 19th September – 31st October, Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm. More info here: http://www.sebastianguinnessgallery.com
