New York Icons: Robert Mapplethorpe & Patti Smith

How dangerous yet sexy does Patti Smith look in this photo.

Something about Robert Mapplethorpe here reminds me of Hedi Slimane's recent photography in Japanese Vogue. He looks very "Outsiders" here too... "Pony Boy" would be proud.

New York fire escapes... Looks like the East Village from this photo.

Rock n Roll, Punk, Chic... Patti Smith.
