Robert Mapplethorpe (New York, 1946–1989, Boston) created some of the most arresting, polemical, and iconic images in contemporary photography. Robert Mapplethorpe: Pictures, organized in close collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, brings together 159 works from throughout the artist’s career, from early collages and Polaroids, to the images of flowers, nudes, sexuality and portraits that made him one of the most notable photographers of the last century. The exquisite binding of this widely illustrated book translates Mapplethorpe’s pleasure for the quality of photographic printing. The catalogue includes a foreword of his close friend Susan Sontag that was written upon the artist’s express request.
