I hope you will enjoy these images. Appreciate them, be challenged by them, reflect on them, be affected by them. But, above all, please honour and respect the brave and beautiful souls who collaborated with me in making them.

I am only interested in painting the actual person; in doing a painting of them, not in using them to some ulterior end of art. For me, to use someone doing something not native to them would be wrong.
– Lucian Freud (From his book, Paintings, 1987)
We live in an atmosphere of shame. We are ashamed of everything that is real about us; ashamed of ourselves, of our relatives, of our incomes, of our accents, of our opinions, of our experience, just as we are ashamed of our naked skins.
– George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful that the garment with which it is clothed?
