Robert Mapplethorpe, Grace Jones, 1988. The lighting really makes this photo stand out. Jones faced is brought out in contrast to the dark head covering. Light on her lips and eyes give them the appearance they are glowing. Stark beauty.
“Everyone has to make their own decisions. I still believe in that. You just have to be able to accept the consequences without complaining.” “Models are there to look like mannequins, not like real people. Art and illusion are supposed to be fantasy.” - Grace Jones (b. May 19, 1948)
