"I have been in doubt: should I take part in the project or not? I admire Anastasia’s work. I love every photo she published. I love honest stories behind the pictures. I wanted to be there but I was afraid. I was scared of being judged, or being laughed at.
Recently, I have visited the Victorian Houses tour in San Francisco. There was a house with rich history, where Janis Joplin stayed for a while. They have her naked photo on the wall in the house. I looked at her and I thought: “There is no sense to live if you are afraid. Imagine if you are already dead. No fear. No lie. No regrets.”
So here I am. This is my way to trust people. This is my way to be open. Nothing can harm me - I am just a ray of light. I feel so young as if I was seventeen. I feel as if they were still alive: John Lennon and my father. I feel so new. Hello world!"
