Apparently orgasm is the only point where your mind becomes completely empty—you think of nothing for that second. That’s why it’s so compelling—it’s a tiny taste of death. Your mind is void—you have nothing in your head save white light.

“Jeff allowed me to photograph him in an uncensored way: while he was playing, being interviewed, at dinner, at rest - everything. He wanted people to see his authentic self as opposed to a rock icon. I photographed him when he was angry, tired, pissed off - most of the time people don’t allow you to see those aspects of themselves, especially when they are in the process of being mythologized.  I think he liked how I saw him through the camera - which hopefully was with empathy. He was very beautiful, but I think Jeff’s beauty wasn’t about his body, but his ephemeral brilliance. He was very inspiring, as an artist you wanted to be as good as he was.”  -Merri Cyr
