These days, nude pics are all the rage. But when photographer Robert Mapplethorpe was alive, it was more taboo. So while at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 25, the director behind a new HBO documentary about the life of the artist, explained why now was the best time to release such a movie filled with Robert’s naked photos.
“Mapplethorpe: Look At The Pictures is a feature documentary about the life and work of Robert Mapplethorpe, and it really focuses on his work and tells his story very much in his own words, and it’s premiering on HBO on April 4,” director Fenton Bailey said during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 25. To hear what else he had to say about the movie and how Robert would react to Instagram if he were still alive, watch the video above!
