Follow the lead car across town to the University campus and park near the Photo Museum. It was an impressive , huge, quiet building. Several rooms filled with black and white photographs by Maplethrope.
Photographs that implied deep thoughts, character, independence, light, style, shadows, and history. The nearby descriptions were priceless to those of us curious.
What were they thinking-
The lady with long legs and a high stool-chair with a doll on her lap
The men in stiff white collars, pressed suits and subdued ties.
The lady with long black hair with a hint of gray posed before a round black circle
The arrogant young man in black leather with his cigarette
The photographer himself growing up over the working years
The famous with serious faces
There was so much to ponder, so much to learn. I’m coming back!
