The Complete Flowers
About this item...
Published by teNeues in 2006, with an essay by Herbert Muschamp.
From the publisher: Flowers are one of the most common subjects for artwork, yet Mapplethorpe excels at bringing something radically new to his flower photographs. Setting them in a universe apart, their poses are classical, reduced to a series of essential forms. His compositions are profoundly simple but mask a complex dynamic. When photographed by Mapplethorpe, these delicate organisms become almost muscular in their raw power.
