Photos of David LaChapelle’s photos by G.
If you are a fan of David LaChapelle’s work and you live in the New York area, you’ve just hit the jackpot! The Paul Kasmin Gallery has an exhibit of LaChapelle’s work including 3 images of Michael Jackson that have never been shown here before. The images depict Michael Jackson as a modern day martyr and as evidenced by his tragic death a year ago, these pictures are downright haunting. The pictures above and below don’t do the actual photos justice, as I was competing with a heavy glare against the glass they are framed in, so definitely head down to the Paul Kasmin Gallery at 511 27th Street to see these works with your own eyes. Sha’mon!
