Eos Orchestra
(2003)

In 2003, New York-based Eos Orchestra commissioned Mapplethorpe to create a limited edition portfolio of twelve portraits commemorating their eighth season. This project encapsulated Mapplethorpe's longstanding admiration for musicians with his preoccupation with time and movement. The Eos portraits were featured at the Orchestra's debut Image/Sound/Image at Carnegie Hall in November 2003.
