"To breath the atmosphere in the red district gets me fantasising, like my works hopefully do with the viewer. Of course, prostitutes also sell fantasies. And I use my fantasies as a basis for my art.

The provocative woman in the photographs is but a part of me. It is largely a role. I hope everybody keeps that in mind. I am a living art work, I wake up fantasies. Nothing less and nothing more."

(Liliane Vertessen, 1987)
