Title
Untitled--I think it best to present myself as being kind, polite and pleasant. It is so important in a civilized existence. This photograph reveals what is under the surface: power, sexuality, self-confidence. One doesn't project this image in every situation--it can cause problems. Nan Cook, from the series Rich and Poor
