The technical expertise with which Kilmas sets up and shoots his photos is sheer perfection. The lighting, color coordination and flower arrangement is on par with Mapplethorpe's analysis of the same subject matter, but much more disturbing, so much so that the artist of the earlier era would be stunned if he could see it.
While Mapplethorpe's work can be emulated today easily in Photoshop, few if any could set up shots as Kilmas has.
Kilmas is indeed a new master photographer of the twenty-first century.
