The Getty Center Museum is currently showing and extensive body of work by photo master Robert Mapplethorpe. The following is from the Getty’s website:
A tastemaker and provocateur, Robert Mapplethorpe was one of the great photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. His highly stylized explorations of gender, race, and sexuality became hallmarks of the period and exerted a powerful influence on his contemporaries.
I am thrilled that so much of his work is in one exhibit, so am anxious to get there as soon as possible. The show runs from October 23, 2012 – March 24, 2013.
