Robert Mapplethorpe’s Fashion Photography

French Vogue, 1986

Robert Mapplethorpe is not just penises and flowers he did a lot of fashion photography that was often overlooked because of his highly controversial X portfolio in the 1980s. Recently the Alison Jacques Gallery in London exhibited the work in their show, Robert Mapplethorpe: Fashion Show. Sad I missed it but it looked amazing!
