"In his extensive body of work, Afanador has created an intensely personal language characterized by the balance of bold emotion and delicate nuance. The expressive images in his books and fashion editorial reveal extravagant dreamlike sequences"..
Colombian photographer Ruven Afanador is one of my preferred artist, because of his surreal ways of capturing and twisting preconceived notions of beauty. A great example of this comes from his book "Mil Besos"-"Thousand Kisses" here we see a celebration of femininity, dance and Flamenco, and what dancing feel like to this Flamenco dancers. Always shoot with and elegant Black and White and an air of sensuality his works bring new beauty to what we have seen before.
