|Sin-ergy is the product of UK artist, Mol Smith. Sensuality, drama, stories held trapped as images waiting to be resolved. This is the art! Sex doesn't sell: sensuality blurred by desire, drama, interpretation of the obsession within humanity... these sell. They sell cars, books, countries, and our lives. We make images which penetrate obsession, wonder, darkness, sensuality, and sell books!
Take a look at new imagery where sensuality is the underlying force tempting the beholder to look further. Like to commission us? Then give us something challenging to create. Yes. We can do it!

Do you ever need pictures of salt? Everyone takes it for granted, but thousands of people off the known map still make a living mining it underground, from the sea, from salt lakes, and in pits through evaporation. Many more transport it on the backs of camels, mules, donkeys, and llamas and trade it for food and manufactured goods on the markets of distant villages. He has photographed all that in the Sahara, Ethiopia, Colombia, and Bolivia.
In an entirely different environment, he has spent 40 days following the Yanomami Indians of the Amazon rain forest from their hammocks to their drinking parties to their forest gardens to their shaman's entranced dances and on their fishing, gathering, and hunting expeditions photographing their every moves.
