Robert Mapplethorpe


Galerie Jurka. Self Published. 1979. First Edition. Softcover. 54 pages. Text in English and Dutch by Rein Von Der Fuhr. Book : VG+.

Scarce. Robert Mapplethorpe’s career wouldn’t have been the same without Rob Jurka, the Dutch gallery owner who introduced the controversial photographer in Europe exhibiting for the first time many of his most renowned photographs. Jurka has also published this early Mapplethorpe monograph, including powerful portraits of lovers, friends and collaborators like Sam Wagstaff, Patti Smith or Marcus Leatherdalde alongside raw images taken from the X Portfolio. Highly recommended.
