Robert Mapplethorpe - The daily peek

Robert Mapplethorpe

Just sharing some photographs I find trully amusing and inspiring.
Robert Mapplethorpe was born in 1946 in a catholic environment. The only thing I dislike is how he admired Warhol. Anyway, the first thing coming to my mind was the feeling of tasting the purest/dirtiest milk ever, as I first watched his work. Regardless his work comes from homosexual repression or not, (like the first comment I received when sharing) that's not what really matters, but the perpetuity that images like these can make you feel/see. Out of worlds we've met before.

Self-Portrait. 1985. Self-Portrait with Bullwhip. 1978.

Brian Ridley and Lyle Heeter. 1979.
