okay, okay, i'll admit that i am incredibly shallow & it was the photograph of the artist, daniel turner, that i first became obsessed with. but then i googled his work & wow. i LOVE it - really, really brilliant & talented artist. although, i would still have to resist the urge to say "come to mama" if i were in the same room with him. mreow.
