A Succubus is a female demon that has sex with sleeping men. In 2015 I published the first part of my Succubus series and now here is the second. Attraction and repulsion is one of the elements i use in my work. I like to attract the viewer with sexuality but then repel them with a strange or quirky happening. The promise of sex is annihilated by the puzzle that is presented in the image.

When I first started taking the Succubus series many years ago, they were merely impossible deformations of the human body I had conjured up. But nature is more inventive than me because, thanks to the font of all knowledge, the internet, I have seen a torso of two very young children with heads and arms at both ends and the vestige of what should have been part of a human limb poking out of their collective side. I once did a picture entitled Janus, a body with two heads mounted on it’s shoulders. Five years later I came across a documentary about two American conjoined twins who shared a body. one head controlling it’s half of the body.
