Your music tells a story.. Just the same as your amazing images!!
Theres no way that your music would exist without your photographs and your photographs without your music..
Its like a relationship of two people which were born for each other..
Like a hug ..
Love..
Like a food for soul..

Thank you:-)

It's truly beautiful and legitimizes photography as an art. With all the trashy "fashion photography" floating around and unexciting commercial stuff that I do on a regular basis for magazines and print I've forgotten why I even like to be photographed at all. Your work has just reminded me that it's because once in a great while there's a chance to be part of the creation of an image like yours, where a woman's body or face can be sexy in a softer, subtle way rather than so harshly presented as an object. So thanks.

Esthete does not simply the one who consider beauty the highest ideal, but its true adorer - essence, which possesses taste and which assumes excellent “religious” idol. Esthete - thinned fan of beauty. Beauty will blind esthete, it makes it necessary to choke and to kneel. And in this sense the following photographs Of fantasy Of life -Francis A Willey truly the aestheticism, since of their inhabitant - this no longer of woman, but the symbolic clusters of air, water and rest, specters. Photographer does not fix them. He overindulges by them.
