During the opening of David LaChapelle’s new exhibition “Earth Laughs in Flowers” at Fred Torres Collaborations last Thursday, a woman was crying and shaking slightly in the back office.

Look at This!
Fred Torres Collaborations (FTC) announced today that it now represents David LaChapelle in New York. LaChapelle who has a new show opening Thursday, “Earth Laughs in Flowers,” a series of 10 large-scale still-life photographs, had his last show, “From Darkness to Light,” in 2011 at Lever House, and in 2010 he presented a solo show “American Jesus,” at Paul Kasmin Gallery. While FTC has “managed LaChapelle’s fine art career since 2005″ according to its press release, a gallery assistant at FTC confirmed today that FTC is now exclusively representing Mr. LaChapelle in New York.
