A study of Lisa Lyon, bodybuilder, in a series of black and white portraits that showcase the photographer's sensitivity to form, light and texture.

About the Author:

? Robert Mapplethorpe was one of the most important figures in contemporary photography. Brilliant, daring, and supremely accomplished, he will be remembered for the classical harmonies, controversial subject matter, and luminous vision that marked his photographs. He died in 1989.
? Bruce Chatwin's first book In Patagonia (1977) was a landmark in travel writing. Traveler, aesthete and a connoisseur of the exotic, Chatwin was a major British literary voice who also wrote On the Black Hill, The Viceroy of Ouidah, The Songlines and Utz before his death in 1989.
