Beautiful




All images courtesy of Interview.

I think Patti Smith looks amazing in these photographs. Admittedly, she is extremely skinny- on- the- emaciated- side of- the- spectrum- skinny in these images (she & Mapplethorpe would actually go for stretches of time without anything to eat, because they were so poor) but I'm not really talking about that. What I'm talking about is more in the hair, the eyes, her presence. Robert Mapplethorpe (R.I.P.) is pretty easy on the eyes in these pictures as well!

You're right - they're both beautiful. I forgot how handsome he was.

I thought everybody would be sick of my Patti posts!

It's alway surprises me what people respond to.

Camille, I'll call/ email you soon! Amy,you too!
That last photo is exactly what I planned to bring to my hairdresser as well!

I hope Patti forgives me for being so superficial if she ever reads this...(but please don't get me wrong-I'm not saying any of you are superficial!)...

I love those photos... they really could be brother and sister, don't you think :^)

Janis, that is funny, because in "Just Kids" Patti Smith's late husband was quoted as saying; (paraphrasing here) "Whenever Robert takes photographs of you, Patti, he manages to make you look like him."
These photos weren't taken by Mapplethorpe- but still!
Kindred spirits.
