“In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas”

("I intend to speak of forms changed into

new entities")

                               —Ov., Met., Book I

The photo shoot of Metamorphoses took place in New York during a short two day trip in June 2013.

"Metamorphosis or transformation is a unifying theme amongst the episodes of the Metamorphoses by Roman poet Ovid. There is a variety among the types of transformations that take place: from human to inanimate object, from animal and fungus to human, from immature to adult, of sex, and texture and color."
