Put a Mapplethorpe in your life


I recently went into the bathroom of a friend’s house and was struck by a subtle initiative Decosex. Look closely at the speculum, a photo of Robert Mapplethorpe is reflected, a complete undress, of those precious bodies of dancers that the New York photographer knew how to capture with such distinction. Leafing through photographs of Mapplethorpe, it never ceases to amaze me that way of portraying so direct and visible, of torsos, legs, muscles, sex … but also of voluptuous and sexy flowers, with a sublime distinction. Put a undress by Mapplethorpe at home it is not a simple task. Always and at all times there will be someone who makes an unsuitable comment or who stops scandalized in front of the photograph … to serve as an example, an apprehensive mother-in-law or a coarse brother-in-law. Undoubtedly, you must have courage and taste to carry it out. And my friend has a good dose of both. With a naturalness beyond suspicion, he put this splendid photograph in the bathroom, in a huge format so that it can be seen well. At the end of the day it is a Mapplethorne, that is, art without prejudice. Photography: Decoratrix.
