"Truth and beauty ARE forever, and always to be found. It’s only that the outward manifestations of them change.
I agree, however, that the artist’s mission is to capture as much of any given manifestation as he can… that one always fails to some extent because one is not God (too bad, but there it is). What you produce is perhaps a sort of monument to it… a reminder and an incentive to keep aware that will inspire others to make discoveries, too.
I can only say an artist can never know what a wonderful thing he may be doing… that some of our apparent failures are our greatest successes."

Blame it on the Greeks


The Greek and Roman sculptors portrayed their gods, legendary heroes, kings, warriors and athletes in more than mortal nobility; endowing them with ideal properties in which ordinary people recognize their own best potentialities. They were left nude not to arouse carnality but admiration.  The Platonic ideal  states a perfect human body is visible evidence of a man's potential grandeur, his ideal self.

Your eye for beauty is unparalleled.

Your ability to capture and preserve it unique, classic and inspirational.

While many of you models have so much more, I know you have captured the best of some.

Thank you.
