From the January 2011 French Photo magazine, Placido Domingo stands among living legends Mickey Rourke, Christopher Walken, and Lou Reed in a stunning 2008 polaroid by Julian Schnabel in his Simon Boccanegra gear.
\m/ metal \m/ Placidone's portrait is 1000000000000 times sicker when listening to Queen's Flash Gordon Battle Theme (below). We can't believe it's 2011 and no one has written a Flash Gordon opera yet. C'mon.
On Friday, using a giant, dolly-mounted Polaroid camera from the ’70s, Mr. Schnabel took the B-list actor Mickey Rourke’s photograph for a forthcoming Village Voice article about his new film, “The Wrestler.” And then he painted Plácido Domingo.
