ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE "BIKE COURIERS" 1985
When one starts to explore Mapplethorpe's oeuvre it is often a surprise to discover the vast output of images he created.
Of course we are familiar with his images of sexuality and florals -whether brutal or delicate...
But Mapplethorpe was also fascinated by symmetry, texture and contrasts.
Mapplethorpe was a product of New York City - and the city as muse is reflected in an image like "Bike Couriers"
