Brace Yourself: Robert Mapplethorpe Is More Uncensored than Ever In Exclusive Clip and HBO Documentary (Indiewire)

More great news from HBO via Indiewire,

“HBO is perhaps the only place you could see the full breadth of Mapplethorpe’s work uncut and uncensored on American television.”

In the exclusive clip above, we learn about how Robert Mapplethorpe wasn’t necessarily eager to expose himself on camera – a stance in sharp contrast to the boundaries he pushed with his photography, as revealed in the new HBO documentary “Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures.”

For additional insight, directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato spoke to Indiewire via email about why they took on the challenge of telling Mapplethorpe’s story, as well as how projects like “Look at the Pictures” help them in the production of other projects Bailey and Barbato work on, like the reality competition series “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Their thoughts on what Mapplethorpe meant to the art world, and why they were inspired to take on the topic, are below.

Hat tip to Uncle Barb (again!).
