In 1980 Robert Mapplethorpe met Lisa Lyon, the first World Women’s Body Building Champion. For the next few years they would collaborate several times creating various portraits and figure studies included both full and fragmented body images. This series of collaborations, which saw Lyon take on multiple guises and ‘types’ of women would result in Mapplethorpe’s book ‘Lady: Lisa Lyon’ (1983).
