This disclaimer is to inform readers that this artist and his agent object to the presence of his work on this site. Although, the request seemed to appear well-considered, it betrayed a narrow-minded bias and total lack of understanding of the purpose of this site. Given the importance of this material and the lack of compelling reason for its removal, I have declined the request. Mr. Erlinger also did not take up my offer of revising this post so it could “properly” convey the desired context of the these images to our readers. It is really distressing to see people with artistic talent to exhibit this kind of intolerance and not want to contribute, in some small way, to a better world.

This artist was born in Germany in 1961 and has traveled extensively throughout the world, mostly operating out of Australia. He now resides in Miami with his wife and three daughters.
Erlinger may have been trying to imitate the style of Jock Sturges here because his photographs are usually in color. These girls are probably two of his daughters and appear in many of his photographs; these two are perhaps the most artistic and sensual.
