Some Women is Robert Mapplethorpe's breathtakingly elega. Again, having just finished Patti Smith’s Memoir of her life with Mapplethorpe, I looked at this book to see his work in black and white portraiture, his career in full swing. Just Kids focuses on their early life together, but it’s clear early on he (and she) liked to take portraits-of Warhol, of his friend Wagstaff, of Patti Smith, many many others. His idea was not to mirror the time, but shape perceptions of the time, to create the time.

Robert Michael Mapplethorpe (/ˈmeɪpəlˌθɔːrp/; November 4, 1946 – March 9, 1989) was an American photographer, known for his sensitive yet blunt treatment of controversial subject-matter in the black and white medium of photography. His work featured an array of subjects, including celebrity portraits, male and female nudes, self-portraits and still-life images of flowers. His most controversial work is that of the gay BDSM subculture in the late 1960s and early 1970s of New York City.
In Some Women, Mapplethorpe presents an exquisite celebration of female beauty. Included in the more than eighty photographs, many new and unpublished, are studies of friends, fellow artists, children, and celebrities-among them Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva, Grace Jones, Sigourney Weaver, Isabella Rossellini, and Yoko Ono. Joan Didion contributes an insightful essay exploring Mapplethorpe as artist and women as subject. Mapplethorpe's luminous vision and his elegant eye are nowhere more evident than in this stunning selection.
