Another very scarce Robert Mapplethorpe’s book, highly recommended. Jurka published some of the best catalogues of this special artist and was the gallery which boosted his career introducing this brilliant photographer in Europe.
Catalogue shows some of his most renowned photographs, like intimate portraits of friends, like Patti Smith, a powerful self portrait, beautiful male nudes, a couple of controversial 'snapshots' of lovers in sex or erotic poses.
This book and others of his catalogues about nude males, like Black Males, are one of the most important visual contributions to the discussion on beauty, sensuality, and sexuality in the photography.
