The Project: I wanted to do a book like this for a long time. It is done in the old art porn format.  I am visual artist/ painter and DJ and have never done such a project. The writings are poems written in dark time in my life and reflect on my dual nature of being the "good" girl and "bad'" girl.. the poems are on the pages of photos I took. All self portraits which either reflect my "virgin" side or "whore" side. It is important to me as an artist to leave this behind. Book is to be full sized.. with high quality pics and will be about 50-75 pages total with each page having pictures and poetry. Some pictures will include graphic nudity.. this is about 50% of the book. It is not meant to be smut rather it is meant to be an exploration of my inner soul.. from both the dark and light nature of it. I feel like I am always at odds with myself and I am also a Gemini so this is why I have named it "The Gemini Project". Final book will be black hardcover and table size! I will print as many books as possible with funding because I just want my book to exist out there somewhere in the world!!! I have never done such a personal project and feel I need it to exist for when one day after I am gone.

I also plan on completing 12 piece large original prints from the book as part of future gallery shows and I hope/ have the goal of having them included at the Kinsey Sex institute art gallery in Florida.
