Last summer I was photographing a friend in my flat when she grabbed one of my old cameras from a display shelf and starting posing with it. She didn’t realise she was channeling a shot by Robert Mapplethorpe, one of my favourite photographers, and one that Exhibit A and I had recreated just a few months earlier. Tonight I watched a fabulous documentary called Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures and remembered that I hadn’t yet shown off this sumptuous shot.

Sinful Sunday

  1. I utterly adore your Robert Mapplethorpe inspired posts, this is no exception 💋
    I was lucky enough to stumble upon an exhibition showing his photos in Edinburgh when I was about 16. Blew my mind. I was so thrilled when I saw you were a fan x
