There is something about David LaChapelle's photography that despite seeming strange, appears to be nonetheless familiar. In his most characteristic images, an unlikely configuration of characters and elements interact on an unusual landscape. It looks as if in his photographs, as occurs in the uncanny, the familiar has become strange.
Shows Michael Jackson's face fractured at the level of the eyes, a severed and bandaged forearm and a few cut-off fingers. The mask's artifice is patent. Is a commentary ont he nature of fame, where the reproducibility of the image occurs at the expense of its fragility, where icons are based on their artificiality.
