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.
â€œI'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for
things I've never seen before.â€ - Robert Mapplethorpe
Me, I just enjoy pushing the shutter... that's me in silhouette!
