Certainly one of my favorite photographers, the David LaChapelle Alan Cummings photo spread is one of the most innovative and imaginative that I have seen in a long while.

The David LaChapelle Alan Cummings photography features the Scottish-born actor (who has a background in stage and theater) in a creatively charged art-nouveau spread that blurs the lines of humanity, focusing on a feel of surrealist androgyny.

Implications - In this beauty and body image-obsessed world, typical photography that is limited to beauty shots is often seen as played out by the consuming public. Artful shots that make statements about this unhealthy societal obsession by playing with unconventional images generate a lot of buzz from the public who are looking for signs that the superficial age may be coming to an end.
