WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT "NAKED TRUTH"
“Jim’s work is always startling in its commentary on the human condition. His work penetrates deeply into the soul of a man, but particularly reveals the suffering and agony at the core of a gay man’s life. At the same time he captures the deeper desire for the universal need for connection and of the wish to love and to be loved. His images make you weep and smile, they make you mad and yet leave you with a deep desire to love the wounded one. Whether gay or straight they are profoundly human and reach to us all”.

“Vulnerable and authentic are words that come to mind when I reflect on Jim’s work. As I look at the portraits I find myself guilty. Yes, guilty of making assumptions. Of blinking and assuming I know someone because I've seen them. Really, do I really see the unique 'them' hidden under layers of clothes and safety masks? Jim's work reminds me of the sacred story within each human being and it reminds me of how valuable every human being is. His photographs unmask the truth within his subjects. Each human being, body unique, each story absolutely captivating. Jim's photography, his editorial vantage point reminds us that our life experiences, beliefs and fears are written on our hearts, souls and minds. Thank you Jim- for reminding me that we are all much more than we appear. You have captured the beauty of the human spirit”.
