ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE: CERTAIN PEOPLE: A BOOK OF PORTRAITS
Introduction by Susan Sontag.
When Mapplethorpe was asked what he does with himself when he poses for the camera, he replies that he tries to find that part of himself that is self-confident. CERTAIN PEOPLE are, mostly, people found coaxed, or arranged into a certainty about themselves. This is what seduces, that is what is disclosed in the bulletins of a great photographer's observations and encounters.Hardcover
