American photographer David LaChapelle is returning to Galerie Daniel Templon with a striking exhibition centring on industrial landscapes. Known internationally for his fashion images and celebrity portraits, the artist has decided to put the light on his artistic and experimental practice. The LAND SCAPE series is based on hand-crafted scale models and explores the notion of landscape while raising questions about the environmental risks of the modern-day world.

His stunning Refineries, temples to oil drenched in saturated colours, paint an indirect portrait of a society facing the challenges caused by its consumption-obsessed lifestyle. The underside of these magical settings – made up of fossil fuel by-products such as curlers, cans and plastic objects – offers an apocalyptic vision of a system marked by the insatiability of its needs.

His Gas Stations nestle in lush vegetation, conjuring up the romantic spectacle of human architecture in the process of being swallowed up. The deliberate fragility of their cardboard structures, their isolation and their otherworldly glow all bring to mind the end of a civilisation.
