    A new documentary on the life and work of Robert Mapplethorpe, now on HBO.

    I had seen some of his work long ago, in the 80's, but it wasn't until seeing this documentary that I really grasped what an incredible photographer he was.

    Yes, he played the shock card, heavily. Looking beyond the shock, what incredible work.

    The new documentary is very well done and inspiring.
