"I do not want this to serve as a pretext for erotica, what I want is for these images to do battle with the great reserves of shame we humans hold for our own bodies.
My intention was to give a more objective view of our naked flesh, without playing upon sexual desire. My main motive to create them was how the nude has been a source of enduring fascination since whenever human beings ever became human beings, and the same too for artists ever since they've been around. Considering this, I became very much intent on crystallising my own way of seeing our form. I hope to have delivered this way, and I hope too that it is perhaps one of my many ways yet to come."
