To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Moment, the Sean Kelly Gallery brought together 54 of the legendary photographer’s images and paired them together under the theme “Saints and Sinners.” The exhibit, which will be on view until January 25, 2014, places Mapplethorpe’s works in a series of pairs, with some connections being more obvious than others. Click through the slideshow for a first look at the photographs currently on view.
