  1. That is a really great photograph. I never knew Maplethorpe did anything like this.

    1. Of course, he is known for his far more controversial work, but he did have a way with environmental portraiture. Add a typewriter and I am over the moon!

  2. A Mapplethorpe with a typewriter and William S. Very nice. No, maybe not his most controversial , but you know full well that when WSB gets on a typewriter like that, there's going to be something controversial written.

  3. An ordinary photographer would have him sit in front of the typewriter. Great composition.
