I remember one day when the model came to the studio looking depressed and I asked him what was wrong. He said it was very embarrassing, but he was feeling fine today. Then it turned out that he felt he shouldn’t be smiling in the session.

This muse effortlessly ignited my imagination – His face tells a story of life’s journey, etched with countless intricate lines that dance across his skin.
