Amazing photos! Seek out his work and writing! I heard about the new publication but haven't seen it yet...
Yes, it was definitely a compliment. I thought you may be a fan. A few years ago I went to an exhibition of his photographs at the October Gallery in London and absolutely loved them. At that point I was only familiar with his writing and the movie The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda
. Definitely worth checking out his work, if you are not familiar with it already.
