This artwork portrays famed transgender model, artist, and fashion icon, Amanda Lepore, kneeling provocatively atop a mirrored surface.

The artwork measures 50 x 60 inches (127 x 152.4 cm), is an edition of 3 and comes unframed in excellent condition.

Born in Connecticut in 1963, David LaChapelle attended the North Carolina School of the Arts and the School of Visual Arts in New York, landing a photography job at Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine while still in high school. He has gone on to photograph celebrities for numerous popular magazines, such as Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Vanity Fair; his roster of famous subjects include Madonna, Lance Armstrong, Elizabeth Taylor, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, and Muhammad Ali, as well as fellow Fine artist Jeff Koons (American, b.1955).
