Grab a copy of this book, especially if you're a photography buff. Unlike the cover may suggest, it's not just a book of dirty pictures. It's a wonderful collection of brilliant black and white Polaroid transfers. Each image is a genuine work of art and, unlike the cover, images show genius in composition.

This is a great book portraying an amazing history that is no longer used. I really miss having a polaroid camera.

what do you think of when you hear his name? Yes S&M photos and the uproar that he caused from particular people questioning wether taxpayers' fund should support such smut or is this really art? Now that I think back, what these group people were really afraid of is that . . if we as a nation accept this as art we are all damned to hell, , , mmm maybe this is the impetus for the rise of the riligous right winger republicans that just about ruined this country as we speak, okay, I digrest, , back to the review. This is a nice photo book for a Mapplethorpe starter because although I have admired his work and know a little something about him, i never really owned a book by him. This is a nice start. It's small and handy and if the homoerotic pixs is not for you, you can glaze over those and admire the floral compositions. The portraitures of these seemingly mundane subjects ( linens, matresses, shoes, dressers) are made elegant by just him photographing it. I wish there was a little more of this to replace some of the peni shots and men couples, but its a minor complain. I recommend it nevertheless.
