Black White + Gray: A Portrait Of Sam Wagstaff + Robert Mapplethorpe

When he died in 1987 Sam Wagstaff left behind a photography collection worth $5 million at the Getty Museum. In photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who was 25 years his junior, he found not only a romantic partner, but an artistic collaborator.
