Certain People

introduction by susan sontag

Mapplethorpe’s portraits taken over the past ten years are exquisitely presented in gravure. His undeniable strength of vision is apparent in all styles of portraiture shown, ranging from stark studio shots of celebrities to environmental portraits of children. Here are many of his well-known images, including the self-portraits, as well as lesser-known work. Sontag’s short essay on portraiture adds insight to the “Mapplethorpe mystique.”
