PATH OF TORMENT A VISUAL STORY BY JF JULIAN {EXCLUSIVE EDITORIAL}


“One must do violence to the object of one’s desire; when it surrenders, the pleasure is greater.”
― Marquis De Sade

 

JF Julian is a photographer based in Paris, France. This lock down and social distance rules made him re-read Marquis de Sade and he wanted to share two quotes that inspired this shoot.

“Before you were born, you were nothing more than an indistinguishable lump of unformed matter. After death, you simply will return to that nebulous state. You are going to become the raw material out of which new beings will be fashioned. Will there be pain in this natural process? No! Pleasure? No! Now, is there anything frightening in this? Certainly not! And yet, people sacrifice pleasure on earth in the hope that pain will be avoided in an after-life. The fools don’t realize that, after death, pain and pleasure cannot exist: there is only the sensationless state of cosmic anonymity: therefore, the rule of life should be … to enjoy oneself!”
― Marquis de Sade
