By allowing the distribution of states for a harmonic oscillator to admit to a
multifractal distribution at high frequencies, we demonstrate that the spectral
distribution of energy for photons admitting the modified statistics has a high energy
anomalous behaviour and the equation of state of a photon gas is also modified.
