Current Obsession: Photographer Jan Durina








"With this sense of the splendour of our experience and of its awful brevity, gathering all we are into one desperate effort to see and touch, we shall hardly have time to make theories about the things we see and touch." ~Walter Pater

The erotic/neurotic photography of Jan Durina seems to capture the aftermath of these moments Pater speaks of: moments of utter ecstasy...moments when the toll of decadence and sensuous experience push us over the edge of rational thought...of consequence.

Such exhausting, beautiful darkness...
