This photograph comes from the personal collection of the subject, Leigh Lee. A Longtime resident of Greenwich Village and a prominent figure in the gay community, Lee was sought out by Mapplethorpe for his unique aesthetic and bleached blond hair. The two lots offered here represent the complete collaboration between Mapplethorpe and his subject. Lee gifted them the present owner, a close and dear friend.
