Exploring our photography collection found this photo of Jeane von Oppenheim by #RobertMapplethorpe in 1983. Baroness Oppenheim gifted this work and 670 other photographs that she collected since the late 60s. Her collection of 30-some years found their forever home here at the Norton, and were exhibited in the exhibition recognizing the collection titled “An American in Europe”. -

One of my favorite photographers ever who could make eternally beautiful shots full of endless artistry. So sad he passed away so soon but no matter it his works are still the source of inspiration.

Opening tomorrow: #BirgitJürgenssen #RobertMapplethorpe and #AnaMendieta are in exhibition 'DRAG: Self-Portraits and Body Politics' at the Hayward Gallery, London: August 22 – October 14, 2018.

The free exhibition features the work of artists who have used drag to explore or question identity, gender, class, politics and race.

Rather than offering a linear or chronological narrative, this exhibition aims to present a multitude of voices that explore cultural shifts of the past 50 years and touch on topics that include the 1980s AIDS crisis and post-colonial theory.

Focused on photography but spanning a variety of other media, DRAG is accompanied by a programme of talks and performances.

My 2 biggest inspirations are Patti and Robert.
Before I picked up “Just Kids” in @strandbookstore in NYC back in 2016 I had no idea who either of them were; I was just drawn to the book; I don’t know why.
And because you can’t show your penis on Instagram 😒 I decided to cover it up with my biggest inspirations.
