To quote from the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition catalog, where these images were displayed: “The eight images in this livre d’artiste do not so much illustrate Rimbaud’s poem as they evoke the mystical, nocturnal melancholy that characterizes the work. Mapplethorpe’s images provoke an emotionally layered response in harmony with the text.”
