This major, long out-of-print survey, widely regarded as the definitive overview of Mapplethorpe's black-and-white photography, is once again available in a new, updated edition. It presents a comprehensive selection of Mapplethorpe's nudes, portraits, self-portraits, floral still lifes, and other works including his best-known and most controversial images. Mapplethorpe's choices were both innovative and bold, and his work has continued to resonate since his untimely death in 1989.
