This image was inspired by the late artist and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
Mapplethorpe’s images were generally of fairly strong sexual content including his renowned flower work which was of strong metaphorical content due to his fascination for male and female genitalia. (be warned if searching his work for the first time)
My image is part of my work for my Diploma in photographic art and was inspired by mapplethorps flower work.
I have used an apple to create the metaphorical statement.
Image taken with a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro @ f11 1/125 using a Bowens studio light and a black background.
