Todays Friday Foto is a homage to the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe who died 28 years ago this month.
Mapplethorpe’s work covered an array of photographic genres, including portraits, male and female nudes, self-portraits and still-life’s of flowers. He also made images of the underground BDSM scene of New York City causing a good deal of controversy as well as a national debate over the public funding of controversial artwork.
The above image is a new rendition of a very old image. So old it was taken in my pre-micro four-thirds days when I had a Canon 40D!
