Patti Smith & Robert Mapplethorpe


New York

Soon after my arrival in New York, I met Robert and Patti at a downtown Manhattan bar. I thought they looked cool and asked them to do a session with me. The authenticity and emotional depth of their love was exactly what I was looking for in my images. 40 years later these shots, which were simply a way for me to build my New York portfolio, have been in great demand for book covers and television & magazine stories around the world.
