"What I found so interesting about this image is that it's about decay and time. The woman in this image, Marilyn Monroe, was known to be terribly scared of growing old and losing her youthful beauty in spite of being a very intelligent person. I saw her timeless symmetrical beauty in this wonderful decaying wall and it became a very harmonious and peaceful photograph.:

 DECAY,is part of the series, MESSAGES  :

"The walls and surfaces around the world are a living ongoing canvas for art and graffiti.  There are many souls infused on these surfaces.  Time has become the main artist.  I have captured, cropped and edited the "graffiti" photographs from my travels to continue transforming how one may read the messages coming from these images.  Some are political, some are purely open for interpretation, and then some are like DADA experiments to me.  In all of my interpretations I am playing with proportion and harmony as I see it with geometry, color and texture."
