Another photo book...

....I found on sale a couple of weeks ago. It's the personal collection of Alan Siegel, who is a US-American businessman that developed a passion for photography while being stationed in Germany in the early 60ies.
I must've been really attracted to the circus theme in it, but the more often I look through, the more I start liking still lifes and landscape photographs.
Oh, and one thing that stood out for me was a flower picture taken by Robert Mapplethorpe, who I only knew through naked hairy man-shots and a particularily disturbing photograph of a woman and a man. I am only gonna say so much as half the dude's arm isn't visible on the picture but I'm not gonna say where it disappears in. Geh dir den Mund mit Seife auswaschen!!!!!!
