Few photographers have obtained the mythic stature of Robert Mapplethorpe, whose often controversial black-and-white photos reflected his life as a gay artist working in the downtown demimonde of post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS New York. The man, the artist and the legend are all recalled in this two-part retrospective that marks the 30th anniversary of his death.
