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. Even if I'm not so fond of bullfight and any other "sport" where an animal dies, I can't deny that there is poetry in Afanador's pictures.

Sombra, a collection of male nudes inspired by still life tableaus, was published by Merrell in 2004.
