Jock Sturges Quote: “In fact, I don’t believe I’m guilty of any crimes, but I’ve always been drawn to and fascinated by physical, sexual and psychological change, and there’s an erotic aspect to that.”

Jock Sturges Quote: “I didn’t think there was anything more or less obscene about any part of the body. Now, I recognize that there are certain postures and angles that make people see red, which are evidence of original sin or something, and I avoid that.”
Jock Sturges Quote: “I will always admit immediately to what’s obvious, which is that Homo sapiens is inherently erotic or inherently sensual from birth.”
Jock Sturges Quote: “A virulent, aggressive minority has decided that Americans don’t know themselves what it is they should see, and need to be protected by people who are wiser than they are, even if they are only a tiny sliver of the population.”
Jock Sturges Quote: “It’s really, really hard to make it as a fine-art photographer exclusively.”

Jock Sturges Quote: “But the truth is that Homo sapiens is a sensual species. I think all species are, to one degree or another.”
Jock Sturges Quote: “There’s no particular evidence that any of the lower mammals or any of the other animals have any interest in aesthetics at all. But Homo sapiens does, always has and always will.”
