Giveaway #2



With a new president comes a new print giveaway!

In 1991, I put on an exhibition called “American Photographs: Traditional Themes by Contemporary Photographers”. The show comprised work by Sally Mann, Lynn Davis, Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Misrach, and Robert Mapplethorpe - each covering a traditional American photographic theme - family, natural wonders, clouds, pioneers, the road, and the flag.

In conjunction with the show, I published an edition of 100 posters of Robert Mapplethorpe’s flag picture, of which I have just a few left. Measuring 20 x 24” and printed on heavy paper, one of these is the new giveaway.

As before, the rules are simple. Just post a comment that includes a way to contact you. The winner will be chosen after one week by randomly picking one of the comments posted.

Good luck!

I believe that today attests to someone greater than Obama..his grandmother who put her time,effort,care and love into a young boy and carved the man who became the President.

This is testament to the power of good family and the love of a good woman

This is the first time in my adult life [I'm 25] that I haven't been ashamed to be an American. Honestly, I've never wanted anything to do with our flag before last night. That couldn't be further from the truth today. We did it ya'll, I'm proud of each and every one of us.
