David LaChapelle searches for beauty. He is enraptured by it, obsessed with it. He is captivated by the beauty of the human body in much the same way as those Italian painters and sculptors of the Renaissance who took such delight in representing the body. They allowed the light to shine in and illuminate the naked human form after centuries of religious prudery had kept it in the darkness.

All the artworks found in this book are made by David LaChapelle. Also this book contains an essay by Colin Wiggins, The National Gallery, London and an essay by Wim Pijbes, Director Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

This is the making of “The Rape Of Africa”
