Since the commercialization and banality of editorial magazine pages have made this work uninteresting, advertising has become an increasingly important part of my work. It is intersting to compare European and American mores in regard to my work. One will notice that most of my European images have a stronger sexual content that those destined for American publication. The term ‚political correctness‘ has always appalled me, reminding me of Orwell’s ‚thought police‘ and fascist regimes.
