Ruven Afanador: Angel Gitano

The images in Ángel Gitano masterfully combine the grittiness of a documentarian, with the grace and inspired creativity of a high fashion photographer. In Ángel Gitano, Afanador has created a visual language all his own--a powerful vision that forcefully confronts and reinterprets gender and masculine beauty, that uses shadow and light to reimagine a soulful dance that has evolved over centuries.
