The definitive collection of Robert Mapplethorpe's flower photographs

Robert Mapplethorpe (1946–1989) is one of the twentieth century's most important artists, known for his groundbreaking and provocative work. He studied painting, drawing, and sculpture in Brooklyn in the 1960s and started taking photographs when he acquired a Polaroid camera, in 1970.

Beginning in 1973 and until his death in 1989, Mapplethorpe explored the flower with extraordinary dedication, using a range of photographic processes from Polaroids to dye-transfer color works. In carefully constructed compositions, he captured roses, orchids, snapdragons, daisies, tulips and other species both common and rare and forever transformed the way we perceive a classic and familiar subject.

The result a stunning body of work is collected in this elegant book, Mapplethorpe Flora: The Complete Flowers.
