Jesus Is My Homeboy

David LaChapelle is an American commercial photographer, fine-art photographer, music video director, film director, and artist.

He is best known for his photography, which often references art history and sometimes conveys social messages. His photographic style has been described as “hyper-real and slyly subversive” and as “kitsch pop surrealism

LaChapelle created this series of six photographs entitled Jesus Is My Homeboy,  he said that through this series, he wanted to “rescue the teachings of Christ” from the fundamentalists, who use Jesus’ words to judge and condemn rather than uplift.  Unlike a lot of contemporary Jesus art, he said, Jesus Is My Homeboy is not meant to be ironic or shocking, but to convey a beautiful sentiment, and the sincerity of his own faith.91r0T14fGgL 77686f0015f0ab4f346fa8cc0e6ca3d6
