EYE CANDY: THE CRAZY WORLD OF DAVID LaCHAPELLE

Florida Museum of Photographic Arts 400 N. Ashley Drive Cube, 2nd Floor, Tampa

Portrait of photographer David LaChapelle, filmed over four years. Inspired by the great Andy Warhol, eccentric photographer David LaChapelle has created a surreal and boundless world where women are pictured swinging from crystal chandeliers, squashed by giant hamburgers and half-swallowed by sharks. The film tracks the input of his creative entourage as they transform studio surroundings and delves into LaChapelle's complex sources of inspiration as he grapples with the brutally commercialized and profoundly pornographic industry he both embodies and satirizes with one click of his shutter.
