Fahey/Klein gallery opened last week with the Columbian born photographer, Ruven Afanador, presenting voluptuous flamenco Spanish dancers divided by glorified and delicate bullfighters. Afanador bold contrasted compositions and exposed highlights imply an audacious and passionate culture of Latin America. His photographs set a multitude of emotional triumphs, being able to sense the agonizing cries of the dancers to the sound of silence in the bullfighter’s solitude. Both series provide a meticulous exploration that is distinguished in traditional costume and style, while maintaining contemporary abstract theatrics. Afanador currently lives and works in New York. The exhibition at Fahey/Klein gallery is open through March 27th, 2010.
