Morgoth is wrapped in shadow and the web of his ravenous and increasingly belligerent "ally", the great spider Ungoliant. She, having drained the silvery tree of Telperion, now drains the light from the golden tree Laurelin. Together, the two will plunge Aman and Middle Earth into darkness.
A fruit will survive both trees - from them will be made the sun and the moon.
From "The Silmarillion" by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I used different techniques for this work, which is likely my last for 2010. Next year I intend to be more experimental in both technique and subject.
The model in this piece is the very talented Bobby Momenteller. I look forward to shooting him in studio early next year.

Based on Robin, the sidekick of Batman. I wanted to do something a little more erotic and contemporary with this shot, suggestive of the relationship between the two heroes and invoking the mansion grounds of Bruce Wayne. Masked and unmasked versions.

The Master teaches his student just how much he doesn't know. For my friend model Alex Kovas - who is both figures in this shot. He's a brilliant performance artist who uses animals as his inspiration.

Syrinx is a nymph who Pan, in his perpetual lust, sees and pursues. Trapped against a river, Syrinx begs the river nymphs to save her. They change her into hollow reeds. Pan cuts the reeds and fashions them into his pan-flute, which bears her name.
Syrinx is also the root of the word "syringe"
Commission for Kevin and Maureen. Kevin is the model.
