Leatherman II by Robert Mapplethorpe (1970)

The photograph titled “Leatherman II” by Robert Mapplethorpe is believed to have been created in the year 1970. The image depicts a collage-style composition featuring elements such as a black and white photo of a man’s face wearing what appears to be a police cap, a colored section that could represent a torso, and other fragments. These parts are assembled in a manner that suggests a disjointed or abstract representation of the human form. The background of the collage contains a crumpled red material, adding a textural contrast to the otherwise flat photographic elements.
