Mapplethorpe has become a reference when it comes to photography in the world of arts. Before his premature death, he developed his work with a first-class aesthetic care. His black and white photos are of a striking beauty. More than 200 of his works are exhibited at the Grand Palais from March 26 to July 13. Definitely shivering!
The former companion of rocker Patti Smith has made a major issue of his search for beauty. His photos show the erotic power of bodies but also the unspoilt or domesticated beauty of nature. Enhanced with shade or light, his photos are arousing by their simplicity on the surface.
Erotic, classical and beautiful. But still, when looked at closely, the photos show one of the strongest designed stylisations the history of photography has ever known. Through more than 200 images, you’ll quickly notice it by admiring portraits, nudes, and still lives that unwind more than 20 years of artistic work. Erotic, classical and beautiful; the work of Mapplethorpe is interrogating.
