raison d'etre

Photography by Mike Reed

Andre Kertesz quotes:

'Everything is a subject. Every subject has a rhythm. To feel it is the raison d'être. The photograph is a fixed

moment of such a raison d'être, which lives on in itself.'

WYSIWYG.  The leopard can’t change its spots. I have aged over the years and developed certain characteristics…

eccentric and otherwise. Some imbued from environment, some genetic. I am what I am. I exist. Yet I am

somewhat a normal male but I do have a fetish or fascination for lingerie. This is an attraction has been since early

childhood. It is not something that torments me but it does underlie my crusty exterior like a soft centre.
