On April 02, 1996, Tupac shot photo session called “Becoming Clean”, thanks to the unique photographer David LaChapelle.
“Tupac was great, he was very sensitive and is truly a good person. I wrote to his mum when he died and she sent me flowers and gave me his last song, Ghetto Gospel. When we did the shoot, he had just come out of prison and every shot has a reason, it’s never random, so this was the idea of the photo shoot, him becoming clean. He had given this interview when he was still in prison and he really opened up and was so honest. I had read it and thought it was so truthful so for the work I did with him, there was this idea of washing away and rebirth.” – David LaChapelle
