A compelling yet enigmatic sequence of radiant images, plucked from his fashion spreads, portrait shoots, and personal projects, unfolds across these pages, transcending the original commissions to form a dreamlike narrative. Thompson, with editor Dennis Freedman, presents a surrealistic high-concept exploration of the theme of seeing with one's eyes closed, even as he seduces us with his photographic craftsmanship.
