"Photographing fashion is creating a mystery and drama. It's a leap from reality that can take you anywhere you want to go and that is its seduction. Photographing people, as portraiture, is a search for what is below the surface. It is there that their truth lies. Photographing nudes, I see the way I would like to be touched. I try to make the light be the sensual caress of a hand. Having spent most of my career photographing fashion, portraits and nudes, it was natural that the sensual beauty and mystery of flowers would captivate me. I get lost in their endless nuances and surprises. The sensual movement of their shapes and colors are almost like a dance. And the quiet place that they take me is hypnotic."
