"Operating in the vortex between false and true existence, the one indistinguishable from the other, Mapplethorpe and Fabre metamorphose their subject matter, photographed or staged, so that the body is 'compromised' in a sublimation of itself, superheated and transmuted into a vehicle for the fever of pleasure and the joy of being."
