From Robert Mapplethorpe’s Catholic upbringing to his early years living in the Chelsea Hotel with Patti Smith, to his ‘40s—his last decade of life due to AIDS—Mapplethorpe offers equal weight to the controversial artist’s own audacity and ambition as it does his focus on BDSM, phalluses, and even flowers. Thanks to rare rediscovered interviews, we get to hear plenty from Mapplethorpe himself.
