Robert Mapplethorpe is one of the 'master' photographers.

"The Perfect Moment" (top book) exhibition, featuring essays by Janet Kardon, Ray Larson, David Joselit, and a dedication by Mapplethorpe's longtime friend and rock artist Patti Smith--all of which serve to broaden one's grasp of Mapplethorpe's vision. But most importantly, the book includes photographs. The flowers, the faces, the bodies, the still-lifes, and yes, the controversial photographs as well, over seventy in all. And each, in its own way, is extraordinary.

“I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for

things I've never seen before.” - Robert Mapplethorpe

Me, I just enjoy pushing the shutter... that's me in silhouette!
