The Rape of Africa by David LaChapelle


Centering around an epic image, David LaChapelle’s The Rape of Africa has been showing at the David DeSanctis Gallery in Los Angeles in September and October, and in Amsterdam before that. But if you missed these exhibits, you can get the David LaChapelle: The Rape of Africa book on Amazon.



LaChapelle’s image is inspired by the Venus and Mars painting by Sandro Botticelli, dating back to 1484.
