“In a world where authenticity is an autograph and reality a genre of TV, our images provide society a mirror to reflect upon its ideals and devotions. We seek to reveal those qualities which make our subjects extraordinary: their personality, aura, beauty and power. As multi-media artists who embrace collaboration with creative partners’ opposing viewpoints, our work embodies a multiplicity of perspectives. We come together through love, planning, discussion, and respect. We collaborate closely with our subjects, to understand them and be inspired by their reality, their fantasies and artistry. We empower them to move freely through our multiple exposures, which we combine for their truest expression, movement and being.”
