The very first feature-length reference documentary on the American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe is more than just a biographical outtake of the icon. His photographic work was scandalous enough for the art world to take in, but nothing was as scandalous as his life. One of the key points in his life was when Republican senator Jesse Helmes denounced his photography, with the words, "Look at the pictures!".
His passion-bordering-into-obsession with magic of photography, and sex will make him one of the most remembered photographers.
This film Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures walks through his Mapplethorpe's very intriguing personal life and relationships, along with many unpublished interviews. The film was first released a year ago in the UK, last March 2016, and is now gracing the French theaters.

A mist makes things wonderful.” said Oscar Wilde.

It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
