HUNGER FOR THE MARVELOUS

“It will be my ability to get each subject, quietly and secretly, to unleash their creative powers, and in so doing, liberate them from their normal inhibitions, and into a state of trust, openness, and creative frenzy.”

“The photo here is of [myself and] my girlfriend at that time (1984), the vivacious Angie Bowie. To be photographed by Steven was an event of extravagant surrealism and high art. His studio was decorated in way that transported you into another world entirely, and you didn’t ever want to leave. Steven was such a sweet and gentle soul, and he was a joy to create with. I miss him so very much, but I’m thankful to have been able to collaborate with him – it was heavenly.”   – Robert Musselman


INVITATION TO YIN YANG

FUTURESCAPE

Great, extended use of the brain.
Powers we can only sense now, will manifest
and bring a magnificent age of clarity.
The merging of the sexes becomes a force-field of creativity.
Utopian satellite planets
Food and energy for everyone.
An age of humanism more passionate and conscious than we can fathom,
If we wake up and listen to the universe.

STEVEN ARNOLD
