[I]conic photographer David LaChapelle has brought us not one but two new books at once: launching Lost + Found and Good News this weekend, the two complete a five-book anthology that began in 1996. Spanning LaChapelle’s entire career, the books chronicle key people, works and events over the decades. The two latest include some of his “most powerful and iconic pop-culture images to date in a visual record of fame, trends and moments in culture that have gotten us where we are today”.
Including the likes of David Bowie and Miley Cyrus within surreal fantasies in Lost + Found and Tupac Shakur amongst vibrant artistry in Good News. As TASCHEN explained “if Lost + Found presents what came before, Good News presents a sublime, artistic interpretation of where we can go from here”. Bringing together various eras of LaChapelle’s work, the two books are said to be the final publications in the anthology, and maybe ever. Starting with LaChapelle Land in 1996, the anthology continued with Hotel LaChapelle (1999) and Heaven to Hell (2006), and completing with these two 2017 editions.
