Bob Love

Bob Love is the model here, and the photo is in the National Gallery of Scotland.
Robert Mapplethorpe took this one in 1977.



  1. This is the kind of Mapplethorpe picture that appeals to me. He had some really good ones that were very 'penis oriented'. There are photographs like this, but there are some that are focused on the penis, and those really appeal to me!

    1. It's all a matter of taste. I changed my opinion after researching this series. Previously, I had found some of his work to be crass and garish, but when I looked closer, I discovered some really artistic photos. Live and learn.
