Berlin was a frequent subject of Robert Mapplethorpe, and two Polaroid images of Berlin are contained in the 2008 book, "Mapplethorpe: Polaroids," which was part of Mapplethorpe's little known early period from 1970-1975, and the actual Polaroid shots were also in the Whitney Museum of American Art exhibition "Mapplethorpe: Polaroids," which ran from May 3 to September 7, 2008.
