Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures
With his portraits, his explicit nudes, his S/M scenes that divided public and critics, Robert Mapplethorpe changed our way of interpreting photography, his work finally being recognised as a form of art. 27 years after his death, his work – and his life – haven’t lost their provocative and subversive impact. Bailey and Barbato have had access to the New York photographer and artist’s entire archives, recovering a lot of rare and inedited works, where it is Mapplethorpe who talks about himself ,without filters.
