David Lachapelle in Stockholm
This weekend I visited David Lachapelle’s exhibition organized by fotografiska museet of Sweden. It was great to see how one can produce artwork by a means of photography. Lachapelle is one of top ten American photographers who has his work in surrealism. This activity was introduced by my colleague, Alisa. The most important photograph in the exhibition is a piece of work called Deluge. It is a scene inspired by works of Michealangelo in Sistine Chapel, when humanity struggles to save their lives, when the world is close to the end and has big flood. Second importance could be two photographs which are part of Heaven to Hell. We see a cozy room after burnt out. And other 200 works dated back to 1998 or few years earlier.

David says "Enlightenment is going to come, and if it’s not going to come from the arts then I don’t know where it’s going to come from. It’s not going to come from CNN. It’s going to come through an artist."
