allusionist

My work combines elements of surrealism and erotic photography with humour. These photographs — be they in color or in black and white - are astounding, provocative and compelling.

My photographs can be read at two levels: on the surface, a feast for the eyes, below that, a wealth of sublime, ironic, sometimes provocative allusion. After the initial shock — maybe even the first burst of laughter — the spectator discovers the photographs’ narrative quality, unfolding between careful mise-en-scène and distorted alienation. Latex-clad women in their fitted-kitchens, manipulated female bodies with two lower or upper torsos — these are stories from the subculture of male fantasy, defused somewhat by self-mocking exaggeration and surreal form, though without losing anything of their provocative and pugnacious quality .
