Patti Smith (Horses) by Robert Mapplethorpe (1975)

The photograph titled “Patti Smith (Horses)” was taken by the artist Robert Mapplethorpe in the year 1975. It features a double portrait of a person, presented side by side, within a single mounted frame. The left image shows the person with a slightly reserved expression, gazing off-camera and holding onto a piece of their shirt. In contrast, the right image captures them staring directly at the camera, their hands gently grasping a jacket draped over their shoulder. Both images authentically represent the unique style and presence of the individual, set against a simple, uncluttered background that ensures the focus remains on them. The lighting is soft and accentuates their features, giving the portraits a timeless quality.
