"Indoors/Outdoors, this is an exploration of nudes in its many guises: in the water, out of water, on a couch inside, a couch in the field, on a winter's day, in the summer, on the edge of a cliff, on a roof, daylight, nightlight, man, woman, flash, no flash, with fabric in wind, in middle of a crowd or a quiet street."

"Would you liked to enjoy a good cigar and making new friends at the same time. I know seeking places in the NYC area can be tough but that is our mission.
