The Great Photographers: Become acquainted with some of history's greatest photographers in this screening and discussion series.

Long overdue, a comprehensive documentary has finally arrived on the life and work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. From the formative days of his upbringing, to his sudden emergence as an artist in New York, to his untimely passing from AIDS in 1989, Look at the Pictures provides an analytic and expansive overview of the genius provocateur. Mapplethorpe’s erotic and boundary-pushing image-making sparked controversy and conversation within and outside the art world. A hero of the LGTBQ community, friends, family and lovers reveal their intimate impressions of the man and his work, and featuring candid interviews with Mapplethorpe himself heard here for the first time. ow.ly/Clzu30dmSTO

Paul Roth, Director of the Ryerson Image Centre, will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion and Q&A on the work of Robert Mapplethorpe.

Co-presented by PhotoEd Magazine, Ryerson Image Centre and Stephen Bulger Gallery.
