Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2017

DAVID LACHAPELLE
Sat 19 Aug – Sun 17 Sep

Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB) presents a major exhibition of photographs by iconic American photographer David LaChapelle, nationally exclusive to the festival. This will be the first time LaChapelle will present an exhibition in Australia.

LaChapelle is recognised as one of the most important photographers of our time. He is one of the rare photographers able to transcend the barriers between fine art and commercial photography, often while communicating a profound social message. His hyper-realistic images are inspired by everything from social issues and political climates, to street culture and art history, to immortality and the metaphysical.

His career, spanning more than thirty years, has seen him photograph some of the most famous faces in the world including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Eminem, Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Kanye West and Lady Gaga, to name just a few. His work is part of the public collections of institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

BIFB is a month-long celebration of international and Australian photography, set in the historic surrounds of Ballarat. The festival is a platform for world-class photographic arts, comprising a core program of major exhibitions, a fringe program for emerging and established photographers, and an outdoor public program taking the arts to the streets of Ballarat, 24/7.

Please note: This exhibition includes nudity that may offend some viewers.
