Despair and love. With Sex, Rituals, Spiritualism and Romanticism we explore our attempts to give meaning to our lives. The selected images present fantasies and imaginings more real than our waking reality. Driven by a hunger to plumb the depths of human emotion, this 304-page volume transports the viewer on a visual odyssey through images of sadness, dark joy and profound melancholy… The painterly darkness of Manhood/Womanhood.
