Robert Mapplethorpe And The Iron Kings

Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe 1969 005-robert-mapplethorpe 5c00bbf4-cf1e-4758-9128-5be8939b2ba9_g_273

All of these photos are from Robert Mapplethorpe. But I think Robert Mapplethorpe has a good place in my Iron new theme since his photos 1) show iron gun sometimes 2) deal with black body beauty which is something you can see in Iron Age representation of people in Assyria and South Mediterranean Kingdoms, Egypt, Babylon etc. the white body symbolizing women and colored body men.

Now about the topic of flowers, I really like the shadow in most of the flower photos even the color orchidea is amazing with its strange beauty and when it is old by this muscular Afrian man it’s really creative and beautiful. Robert likes closed eyes models like this one above and like he explains in the movie I watched yesterday maybe because of his catholic education with a lot of clothed-eyes-saints paintings, I don’t know…

Movie: Arena – Robert Mapplethorpe (1988) here in Spanish:
