"... Lets be straight, I don't mean the trendy beauty to which they might aspire and might be flattered to possess, but the unknown beauty that transforms them into instruments of an orchestra of global music, makes them the juncture of contradictory charms, tranfigures them into the locus of human occasion to express its tenderness, its compassion for the smallest thing, as well as its terrible harshness, its implacable advancing, always young and strong, assimilating death in its blood."
Odysseas Elytis - Eros, Eros, Eros
I had been struggling with developing a mission statement, until I read this piece of writing from the Nobel laureate Elytis' Eros, Eros, Eros and it summed it all up for me...
To all the goddesses that walk the face of the earth and fill it with beauty, all the out-of-the-"ordinary" women that create Life, to the face of Venus I see behind the visage of every woman... this site is a tribute to the beauty of Womankind.

"Taking photos of women is a most amazing, exciting, aesthetic, heart-thrilling, experience there is for me... Looking at a woman through my lense, I feel like I am beholding the beauty of the Creator's most beautiful creation and given the opportunity to capture it, not just admire it... I am always looking for some special smile, mysterious look, facial expression, or spontanesous moment and the excitement of the possibility of being able to freeze time, to stop it, and capture a moment of it is sheer aesthetic joy and enrichment. Photography for me is a form of worship. My photos are my Art. Do not desecrate my shrine."

"... Sure, she can be a Nurse, but why not be the Doctor, or be the Lawyer instead of the Secretary?..."
When Ihear that Doctor-Lawyer thing I get sick... Wake up people... Is becoming a doctor or a lawyer the Path to Enlightenment or something ? (I grew up in Lebanon where every parents "dream" for their son or daughter is to be a Lawyer, Doctor or Engineer.)
The author is saying 'its got nothing to do with carnal sex, don't even think it does, thats near sacrilige, this is something higher'.
