I will be away for a few.  While I'm gone, make sure you don't get on the wrong side of Santa's list for next year.

As a European, I noticed Americans tend (mostly unconsciously) to portray black males as "sex animals" about to rape the viewer, fantasizing on an aura of threat and violence ready to erupt: feasting with black panthers, really.
I was therefore glad ans surprised in finding in your work someone who portrays them in the same way white models are portrayed. Nude studios,  portraits: that's it. I thought I wasn't particularly attracted by black men, you made me realise I was not attracted by the way they are usually portrayed as hyper-macho thugs freshly out of jail (and about to go back there).
In short, I like your work.

Many thanks for your thoughtful observations.  I had not given much thought as to how I portray my models other than I have always found a photo shoot to be a mater of trust and respect.  My goal is to create art and I have chosen to do it by portraying the natural beauty of the African American male.  In the process, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many fine young men.
