Ruven Afanador is born and raised in Colombia and owes very much to Italian cinema and the glamour of Italian fashion catwalks in Milan. A very appreciated fashion photographer, in 2000 he received the title of "Best Photographer of the Year" in Paris.

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. 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.
