Mapplethorpe: Look At The Pictures On DVD!
The one thing more outrageous than Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs was his life. Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures is the first definitive, feature length portrait of the controversial American artist since his death in 1989. The documentary is out on DVD now from Dogwoof Pictures, and we’ve teamed up with them to give away three copies.
Directed and produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (Inside Deep Throat, The Last Beekeeper) Mapplethorpe is an intimate look into the life of a trailblazing artist dedicated to making photography into a respected, valued and collectable art form in the contemporary art market. Intimate revelations from family, friends and lovers are topped only by Mapplethorpe’s candor, revealed in a series of rediscovered, never before heard interviews, made public for the first time. Speaking about his life, loves and work, this ‘confessional’ is supported by previously, rare archival footage and images, which give a brand new insight into a man who lived the same way he took his pictures – in black and white.
This captivating documentary is a unique portrayal of an artist who turned photography into contemporary fine art with a bold vision that ignited a cultural war still raging to this day.
