 Just as we have taken in words, we have taken in images... they are afloat within us... as they come out in different combinations, images made in different points in time also become, in a sense, timeless. 
 I show the beauty and the wonder of the male nude and I show him in terms of his position as lord of the lingam. 
 Art is a matter of picking up on the mundane and giving it form at a higher level of expression. 
 Photography! Summation of the life experience
Exquisite focal point of all being
Aromatic distillation
Inmost
And ultimate
Light.
