whoring your way to infamy

i meet so many fascinating and interesting people. sometimes it feels like an artistic version of Gonzo Journalism except they are the ones trying to find the American Dream and i am the way they can whore themselves to infamy.

i chose a long time ago to separate my true self from the persona of my art, but i cannot claim to be completely impervious to the experiences i chronicle. since i do not discriminate for the most part the models who participate, i get a lot of people who model not for the art or the creation but for the chance to be famous, idolized, objectified and even used sexually. i have always chosen to take all comers because i desire to create sublime art from the ordinary and the extraordinary.
