Ruven Afanador is considered one of the leading photographers working in celebrity and fashion photography.

His work appears in most major fashion magazines in the world as well as in The New Yorker.  His commercial clients include Arista, Cacharel, Christian Dior, Elektra et al.  In the fall of 2001, a decade after his work first began attracting widespread attention, he published his first book, Torero.  Within a year Torero sold out and became a collector’s item within the fashion world.  Sombra, a collection of male nudes inspired by still life tableaus, was published by Merrell in 2004.  His work has been exhibited at Throckmorton Fine Art, Arte Fino Gallery, Lisa Sette Gallery, Instituto Municipal de cultura, and Foto Museo, Colombia. www.throckmorton-nyc.com
