I recently received an email from a gentleman named Theo who works at Art Sy, a website that promotes artists and sells art. Theo reached out to me because the site has a Robert Mapplethorpe page. You might ask what I have to do with Robert Mapplethorpe. Well, nothing, really, other than an appreciation for his work. But, in the fall of 2013 I did a Calla Lilly series on the blog and quoted Robert Mapplethorpe in several of the posts. Theo found me when doing research on Mapplethorpe.
During my correspondence with Theo he asked if I would add a link to Art Sy and the Mapplethorpe page to my original posts. As the posts are two years old now, I thought I should just write a new post and present a couple of new black and white Calla Lily images. These images are quite different from the images in the original series because the lilies are note pure white, but pink or purple and white. To give you a point of reference of the original series, I am adding the links below.
Calla Lily V
Calla Lily VI
I would love to hear your thoughts on the original series as well as the new pictures. Which is your favorite?
