Robert Mapplethorpe - Calla Lily

This is a very dynamic photo of the Calla Lily. What makes this photo so successful is the elegance of the organic shape along with the captured delicate texture of the bloom. Robert Mapplethorpe focus is so sharp you can see the subtle texture and soft folds of the bloom. Using high contrast of subject with background and light and shadow he is able to create this rich high contrast photo that still has an essence of soft delicate bloom.
