“The Columbian-born fashion photographer Ruven Afanador has built a remarkable career out of capturing the raw and impassioned beauty of his subjects. His latest book, an homage to the women of flamenco entitled ‘Mil Besos’ –1,000 kisses, in Spanish—is perhaps his most powerful work yet. The women in these images, dressed in all-black Galliano, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, their eyes rimmed in inkey kohl, emerge from Mr. Afanador’s imagination, inspired by the fantastic tales told to him as a child.” ~New York Times
“The severe drama of the Spanish musical genre comes to life in seductive pictures bathed in Afanador’s high-contrast chiara and scuro.” ~LA Times
"Flamenco has fascinated the Columbian photographer Ruven Afanador since he heard stories of Spain as a child...he reinterprets the art in 'Mil Besos,' a book of portraits coming out this fall." ~The New Yorker

i would have like them to send my packet like a gift (it just take a + on the packet on gift.!!
so i did not have to pay 25 procent in import taxes ( to europe) denmark.
The book is a little over the top (just like flamenco!), and that's what I most like about it. The Amazon review is dead-on when it references Pedro Almodovar. Like all the best photo art books, there are a number of images that feel completely new and completely classic at the same time.
I was very surprised to see one of the reviews here. To me, the front and back covers of the book give an extremely clear indication of what to expect from the inside.
