“I am obsessed with beauty. I want everything to be perfect, and of course it isn’t. And that’s a tough place to be because you’re never satisfied.” – Robert Mapplethorpe
I recently posted two blogs which included images of Calla Lilies. The blogs can be found here (Her Majesty) and here (Intertwined). After I shot the images of the Calla Lilies and began the editing process, Robert Mapplethorpe and his views on life and photography came to mind. I did not do a proper Calla Lily series, but will be posting several more images from the shoot , all of which, give mind to Mapplethorpe and his gifts to the art of photography. To learn more about Mapplethorpe, visit The Robert Mapplethrope Foundation website.
I think I mentioned in one of my previous posts that in the Language of Flowers Calla Lilies represent either modesty, or magnificent beauty, a reference to the title of this image.
