Hi Frank, Linda, and Mikee,
Thanks for your note. I thought you would like the photos, even as I
do, but to hear such enthusiasm is really exicting. I have done 23 sexual
photo shoots to date, most of which have been very powerful for me in
one way or another. But there is something about your shoot in particular
that I find particularly transcendental. Working with the proofs has
put me through a lot. It would take me a while, each time, sitting with
all the images, before I could even see clearly what was in them. The
process of selecting particular images for printing is always very intense
and personal. By the time I am done pouring over hundreds of images
of people being sexual, looking for minute details which show most deeply
what (I imagine) was going on for them, I often feel (I say this a bit
tongue-in-cheek) that there's a way I know their sexuality better than
they do. I certainly feel that I know them in extremely intimate detail.
Your photos have a unique way of transporting me that I don't entirely
know how to describe or undrstand. there is something very powerful
and universal -- beyond the specifics of sex, really -- in them. I am
always grateful for their effect on me. I do hope and believe that they
will move other people in much the same way that they move me.
again for the chance to work with you.
