When asked to describe his work, Ian responds, "I mostly take strange portraits of beautiful girls, or maybe it's the other way 'round. My constant themes have been contrast (both visual and conceptual), beauty, darkness, personality, and the unnatural or supernatural. The same character, whether it's the subject herself or a fictional creation, should be seen as both powerful and vulnerable-- either predator or prey-- within an instant."
