Whether it be nudes, floral still life, or self-portraits that play with light, shadow, and composition, Robert Mapplethorpe’s works were mostly concerned with Classical quality of beauty. Along with Mapplethorpe’s photograph, the auction organized by Phillips Auction discovers an array of photographs by prominent artists such as Cindy Sherman, Robert Frank, and Helmut Newton.
Work by Robert Frank displays a cutting perspective on American culture, disregarding traditional techniques. His nonchalant attitude towards traditionalism, at first, shocked many viewers. These elements of his photography started becoming a hallmark in the world of photography. Even today, Frank’s work continues to shape contemporary photography. Another photographer whose creativity and skill stands out among the collection is Cindy Sherman. For decades, Cindy Sherman has experimented with the portrayal of identity, playing with the visual and cultural codes of art.
