ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE born in 1946 in Floral Park

He did portraits of flowers

He used a large-format press camera.

He used natural lighting on his non studio work but, on his studio work he used his studio lighting.

He was influenced by Sam Wagstaff, George Dureau, and Wihelm von Gloeden

Before he got into photography he was painting and sculpting.

I chose this photographer because he shot flowers and I like taking pictures of flowers.

Here are some photos he took over his career.
