In her own words . . . .
My goal is enlightenment. The camera is a tool, to express love. Each picture is a part of me and I live with it. In good acting, like good photography, when I find the moment itís orgasmic. I experience total merging of consciousness with the part I play or with the person I photograph. Itís a sensual, sexual, spiritual experience. Itís the heart charka. I embrace the subject with my camera and feel the essence of the soul allowing all her pain and joy to come through my eyes. I as the empty camera am filled with her being.
