Robert Mapplethorpe | Rare Image
The X Portfolio Out-take
Marty and Veronica (?)


Mapplethorpe may have been dead since 1989, but it seems there are still a number of images which creep out (literally) from time to time, never having before been published.


Might this be an out-take from the X-Portfolio? an alternate image of Marty and Veronica?


If it is, only the tables were turned to protect the guilty.

The Lost Photographer | Bill King [American]



Photographed by Robert Mapplethorpe, with his images strewn throughout GQ and Vogue in the 80s, Bill King's work vanished into obscurity after his death from AIDS. Rumors of Polaroids of some of the most famous people in the world at their most decadent captured during his legendary studio parties have persisted throughout the years. According to urban legend, he left all his work to his last assistant, Stewart Shining, but legendary stories of a massive studio fire and a protracted legal suit with Bill King's family, as well as a massive inheritance tax which needed to be paid, have all contributed to the rarity of Bill King's images, considered by most to be one of the greatest fashion photographers of the 80s. Will we ever see the legendary coffee table book which was being assembled at the time of his death? Only the future will tell.

A mind is a terrible thing to lose, especially in 80 minutes.
Brilliant film.
Let's just say I didn't see "it" coming.
