Panorama / Arts

Premier latinoamericana

Bailey and Barbato encourage the audience to closely observe the work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, known for his explicit images of genital organs and sadomasochistic acts, showing they still have the power of provoking, seducing and getting people furious.

The production of a retrospective exhibit carried out between the Getty Center and the LACMA proves ideal to delve into one of the most provocative works of the past 60 years. The documentary directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (and produced by HBO) eschews the chronology of a life and focuses explicitly, like few other works, on the photographer in that loop where Mapplethorpe becomes Mapplethorpe again and again. New York in its wildest moment, the body as a land to explore and exploit, and the skin of a man who made god and the devil converge in the same image until consuming in its own fire. It’s the deep stroke of photography going from testimony to art, and then to one of the most fascinating and dense experiences of the 20th century. MV
