“The sexual tensions in my photographs are par excellence of an aesthetic and psychological nature. In my personal sexual life, I have rather primary tastes and practices. What one would call a certain perversion in my work, it is only the result of an aesthetic research for the ideal in which the seduction has its share. It is about an intense fascination for everything that one could do to be transformed physically to an ideal which often was dictated to him, in order to conform himself to the desires of the other. I myself consider that all extreme sacrifices that one can make in this subject are beautiful, touching and tragic.”
