"The beauty of somebody or the beauty of a situation is my favorite thing to photograph because of what it represents–a purpose. Beauty can manifest itself in vastly different ways and more importantly at vastly different times. Situations are worlds. Artists are prophets, lighting up what we think the future should look like. The art is neither in the past nor the present, but always in the future. The photographs you see are a world. The world they depict speaks of hopes and fears. Of the death of curiosity and the reckless disregard of convenience, of feeling alive again. Smoke is creation, freedom and fire. The characters are youth, the sinewy and strong form of action. Their faces show an incomplete comprehension of Time. A world in which Time hasn't touched yet." - Daniel van Flymen
