Robert Mapplethorpe

Robert Mapplethorpe, Lisa Lyon, 1980

from The Mapplethorpe Foundation

Similar to Dijkstra, Mapplethorpe uses the body and individual but seen as an object of desire rather than classification of a group. Yes, this group of images is specifically female but it does not describe a particular group of women. The subject matter or body focuses more on form rather than content or meaning surrounding the figure.
