Behind the Scenes Photos of Patti Smith
Smith shares some of her personal photographs from her early life with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe with TIME magazine.

Finally, I must speak of Robert Mapplethorpe. I was his first model, a fact that fills me with pride. The photographs he took of me contain a depth of mutual love and trust inseparable from the image. His work magnifies his love for his subject and his obsession with light.So, as one who has stood before the camera of many artists and friends, I can only advise a photographer to love his subject, and if this is not possible, love the light that surrounds her.(via TIME)
