This is the first image from my second session with model Gilberto Mendez. When I get a new session shot, my first task is to review all the raw material and make some early picks when I see some that grab me. This one stood out, and as usual with a new cycle of images, it serves as a thematic introduction to the new concept I want to explore going forward.

"I Am The Doorway" is the title of a short story by Stephen King, but this image has nothing to do with it. This cycle will deal with science, and the pursuit of other realities, a short little visit to the multiverse. At least, that's the plan for now...

Using the same model and wardrobe from my Red Balloon series, I want to take this one to a grittier, darker place. Here, I am depicting an imaginary Victorian era scientist trying like hell to open a portal and transport himself to another universe.
