Pinacoteca Nazionale
3 October - 1 November 2015


Known internationally for his thought-provoking images, LaChapelle’s newest series LANDSCAPE uses hand-crafted scale models to explore the infrastructure of oil production and distribution, illustrating the impact it has on modern society.

Photographed in the expansive deserts and along the coastlines of California, the stunning Refirreries a-re shrines to the product and the lifestyle it makes possible. The underside of these captivating settings – made up of repurposed by – products bathed in an ethereal light- offers avision of the unmagical consequences of the petroleum-dependent system.




The exhibit by David LaChapelle is part of the theme section POST-PRODUCTION of FOTO/INDUSTRIA 2015, the second Biennial promoted and organized by the MAST Foundation with the artistic direction of François Hébel. Fourteen exhibitions with free admission, dedicated to industrial photography, enterprise and work, and housed in prestigious locations of Bologna historical centre and at MAST. The exhibits are curated by Urs Stahel.
