What is important, then, is not that the critic should possess a correct abstract definition of beauty for the intellect, but a certain kind of temperament, the power of being deeply moved by the presence of beautiful objects.
Walter Pater

As a writer, photographer, and artist, I love the aha moment that comes when I see a connection between an image and lines of prose, poetry or even a fragment from my own journal.

Satin & Sand looks at the beautiful, extraordinary, sensual, and passionate in life and love (and also the gritty side – as in love lost).

Much love!

P.S. In addition to my photographs, several models and photographers have kindly provided me with test shots to use in this blog – many of which have never been published before.
