Robert Mapplethorpe Embrace


About this product

Robert Mapplethorpe, Embrace, 1982 vintage postcard. The photograph features models Mike and Fred dressed and undressed nearly identically absorbed in a passionate hug. Across their shared poses, chests pressed together, buried in one another’s shoulders. Mapplethorpe draws great attention to their racial difference using the stark binaries of black and white value to render an affecting image of interracial connection.- Levi Prombaum. Measures 4″ x 6″
