We usually define one's beauty from the front. But here I wanted to blend the body into the architecture of the windmill. The image depicts a juxtaposition of the historical structure and mans ephemeral body under the sun. The beauty of man is short-lived, but without a man, these structures would deteriorate slowly over time. This image defines man's passion and enjoyment with beauty, health, architecture and the sun.

From the series, MEN OF THE WORLD. A black and white collection of images shot at exotic locations around the world.

Giclee print on Hahnemühle German Etching paper

Shot on location at the Wind Mills, Mykonos, Greece 1998.

The image was taken on a trip to Mykonos in 1998. I was invited by a friend to come and stay for a week. On my first day the island was bleak, it was extremely windy and I couldn’t see what the fuse was all about. It wasn’t until I woke up the next morning did I see the beauty. The serine blue crystal waters of the Aegean Sea and the Cycladic structures that littered the landscape made the island a special place to visit. It was like stepping into a Star Wars movie but this time the colour palette of the Cycladic architecture was predominately white and with blue doors and shutters.

The man in the photo saw me on Super Paradise Beach. He was a gorgeous Italian man from Milan and he said he knew me. Wow, I thought with disbelief. I am in the Aegean sea and out comes this extraordinary tanned adonis from the water and he says he knows me. Now, that was a welcome I would have never expected. At least five years had past since we had last met. We met in Sydney when I was living there at Edgecliff on the harbor. I asked him if he could do some creative photos with him, and he agreed. Mykonos is famous for it’s iconic windmills and this became our location of choice.
