    I've been looking into Mapplethorpe's work for quite a while now. I'm surprised to have not found a thread here...

    Pretty much unbelievable that a lensman of his stature didn't have a thread already:shock: His work is obviously not to everyone's taste, but his pics of flowers and some portraits are extremely beautiful.:heart:
    Thanks for starting the thread.:flower:

    I don't have the rights for these HQ images and it says:

    Reproduction is authorized only in connection with news articles about or critical reviews of the exhibition. Unless otherwise agreed in writing not more than six works may be reproduced in one article or review. Reproduction rights end 3 month after the end of the exhibition. The reproduction of the photographs have to include the corresponding copyrigth line

    so only a link:

    btw after seeing the exhibition I agree the portraits of Patti are amazing (especially the sets for the cover of Horses & the Albrecht Dürer ones)
