The Raptor


  1. No comments on this great little series?

    I particularly liked the overlapping contradictory text, it gave it a nicely surreal feel. I also wonder when (hint) the sequel arrives, will we see the Mistress in charge?

    The only question remaining is what is the address of this place?

  2. Very surreal. Nice hallucinatory and dream-like images. You tell a great story here, very seductive.

  3. Hello Dee Dee and Mingle, thanks for the feedback.

    The Mistress is Zamanthras from my earlier 'Escape' series. I wasn't entirely satisfied with the 'The Escape - part 2', while it served it's function of concluding the story it lacked any psychological themes and was quite prosaic.

    I knew I wanted to write something from the perspective of someone who encounters and is transformed by Zamantras and it's new women and I thought it would be interesting to push the narrative structure in a different direction.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  4. Oh my god...that may be one of the single hottest things I've ever seen...

  5. Hi Jenna,

    I'm glad 'The Raptor' is still an effective te. It was probably one of my earliest extended attempts to marry obsession, duality and fashion photography. As always I'll have to thank the photographer Steven Meisel whose stunning imagery is a constant inspiration.
