David LaChapelle “Earth Laughs in Flowers” Exhibition @ Robilant & Voena Gallery

Starting February 14, the Robilant & Voena gallery in London will play host to a new series of works by American fine-art photographer David LaChapelle. The ten large-scale images, titled “Earth Laughs in Flowers” is inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem Hamatreya, in which the earth’s flowers ridicule man’s arrogant belief that he holds a permanent and indestructible dominion over the earth he walks on. Utilizing skulls, flowers and fruit as Baroque imagery, it’s clear that LaChapelle is in top form. “Earth Laughs in Flowers” runs through March 24, 2012.
