French-born photographer and fashionista Maripol has influenced many musicians with her vision, including Grace Jones, Deborah Harry and Madonna, whom she adorned in black bracelets and crucifixes, a look that became the pop icon's calling card in the mid-80's. But Maripol is also an artist herself, both in film and photography. She helmed the Keith Haring documentary "Crack is Whack," and worked on post-production for "Downtown 81," which starred artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Her polaroids have been displayed in museums all over the world and are currently being showcased at New York's Clic Gallery in an exhibition titled "Rolling the Hoods with Maripol."
