There are also photographs where it makes use of natural light, but even so demonstrates a mastery of the shadows and the direction of the light; domain that can only be observed in an experienced photographer. Another recurring theme in the work of David Lachapelle is dynamism. Pictures show one way to the other, a strong dynamic and which gives great force to images. First of all, the use of the sweep is common in one than another picture in the exhibition. Possibly at first sight not noticed much, but a detailed observation of the photos showed areas with little sweep or areas first blurred by motion. Curiously, the antithesis commonly attributed to photographic sweeps are frozen, taken with high speeds, images.
Some of the photos that best illustrate this phenomenon are those belonging to the collection of Heaven to Hell, where the the flames gave an exceptional strength and a very subtle life to images. These photos are taken with frozen, but far from kill the energy of the box, give us a sample to detail from the voracity of the flames and encourage the spectator to flooding of the brio of the flames. The last element that demonstrates the dynamism is in the same images that compose the picture. Dramatic poses, a quite expressive body language and a few looks loaded with power to direct the eyes of the Viewer do that technique is half of the achievement and creative direction to carry the communion of espectador-obra almost to the edge of the regular conversation. Finally, for my part, I can say that experience was not only an artistic ecstasy and an incredible interpretative exercise in social discourse, but that was a great inspiration and a very good learning both technique and experimentation. David Lachapelle offers a new universe of possibilities where, apparently, the photographic art has no boundary. Needless to mention that aesthetics is superb thanks to the communion of all those involved: the photographer, equipment, models and other people involved in creating this delight human beings. However, far from removing credit to Lachapelle, admittedly it like dreams-producing machine that has had the passion for sharing their ideas, follies and manias with humanity. At the end of the day, even though this is a piece of art worth seeing is, it is mostly recommended by photographers in training that can absorb new methods of problem solving and new creative muses. I definitely think that the name of this notion is more than assertive, the periods of all these variables mentioned above is, really, a delirium of reason.
