PHOTOS: David LaChapelle at Galerie Templon, Paris text and photos by Nadja Sayej

It was such a pleasure to see David LaChapelle descend upon Paris for his art opening at Galerie Templon this past weekend. The famed photographer – who now lives in Maui – is showing his classic celebrity photos of Lil’Kim, Andy Warhol and Miley Cyrus alongside his newer works, religious-inspired landscapes with nudes shot in Hawaiian rainforests for his solo show entitled Letter to the World. The exhibition is on until December 29 at the gallery’s Grenier Saint Lazare lcation, it’s worth check ing out this pop art master, and yes, the new photos are as colorful as you might expect. It might give you inspiration away from the everyday. As David famously once said: “People say photographs don’t lie, mine do.”
