"This photograph by Robert Doisneau captures a man, most likely a sailor, smoking a cigarette. Above his bed he has several photographs of pin-ups and his tattoos emphasize his stereotype. This image relates to all of my own built up phantasms of a sailor and his environment. The tones and composition excite the eye. The corner of the wall pulls the viewer in, then they move around the room to the women and back the sailors tattoos to only be pushed back into the corner with his smoke"
