Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures

The only thing more outrageous than Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs was his life. Intimate revelations from family, friends and lovers are topped only by Mapplethorpe’s candor in a series of rediscovered interviews impressively assembled by director’s Bailey and Barbato. This is the portrait of an artist who turned contemporary photography into a fine art, with a vision that permeates culture and society to this day.
