The Perfect Medium

    Must See
    One of photography's enfant terribles is the focus of an expansive exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and he needs little introduction. Robert Mapplethorpe: the perfect medium brings together portraiture, floral still lifes and erotica inspired by classicism and an unrelenting quest for beauty no matter what the subject.
