Papyrus Productions: "Represents porn sites devoid of their occupants and presumably drained of desire. Curiosity led me to investigate sites of desire. After initial shock at the full description of the most intimate secrets, only the emptiness of passion drained of love remained - the banality of fucking."

The human beings in the photographs have been removed using Photoshop, leaving a hole in these fourteen interiors – and removing any hint of ardor. In the place of passion are the droll dregs of desire.
