"All it takes is a group of like-minded people and the ability to communicate and take over and maintain space. A lot of what these movements come out of is the hanging out."

IDOLS – 1973 : Gilles Larrain

Photographs are my reactions to the provocation of beauty – whatever that may be. “No need to display my cleverness to control the subject or to impose my personality.
