Kenneth Capello was the former assistent of David LaChapelle, which you can see in his high intensity images. But where LaChapelle creates an surrealistic world filled with polished people, Cappello depicts the world in a more direct way. His works have been featured in i-D, Dazed & Confused, GQ, Vanity Fair and the likes. In 2008 he released his book Acid Drop with old snapshots of the skate scene of his youth (see more images of it here). He also directed a video for the Kills, and shot them several times. Here are some samples of his work.
