Oh how I have been dying to read this book! I bought it but I don't have the time to read it. I got a few pages deep and then homework took over.
A few years ago I was studying Polaroid photographers when I first discovered that I loved making them. This led me to Robert Mapplethorpe, who in turn led me to Patti Smith- two gifts at once! I thought my love was for Robert as he is the photographer in this weird couple and an amazing one at that- but it's Patti. Just look at her, her expression, her clothes and the way she is standing. Of course she was Mapplethorpe's inspiration and muse.
