Black, White and Gray: A Portrait of Sam
Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe


Directed by James Crump

LM Media GmbH and Arthouse Films

USA, 2007, 72 min

One was a legendary curator and collector. The
other was a hungry, young
photographer from suburban New York. Together, Sam
Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe would influence
the art world with Mapplethorpe's infamous images
of the gay/S&M underworld and Wagstaff's
multi-million dollar collecting mania. Told by
confidantes, including singer Patti Smith, Crump's
debut film explores the two men's symbiotic
relationship, professionally, personally and
artistically.
