LIL’ KIM // DAVID LACHAPELLE

I just finished up a research paper on David LaChapelle and his surrealist style as a fine art and fashion photographer and I kept coming across pictures of Kim. A lot of the iconic pictures you find of Kim (The Louis Vuitton symbols, the Viva Mac campaign, Notorious KIM, and all of the ones pictured above) were taken by him.

David took a particular interest in Kim because he loved hip-hop culture and the attitude behind it. I don’t know if he explicitly said why he garnered so much inspiration from her, but I would assume that it was because they had similar attituides towards fame and not letting it change who they were.

There’s an attitude, there’s a distinct style, and it’s all woven into a narrative story, which is ideal for my photography." said David LaChapelle.
