ART BLOG #4: RICARDO ACEVEDO

Wendy, by Ricardo Acevedo, "What the Wind Blew In"]Ricardo Acevedo is one of the best, most exciting, prolific and underrated artists in Austin, Texas. Not just because he took the photo on my header. He does amazing things with images of women, people in clubs and raw urban spaces. He excels at the thing that photography does best: capturing split second of time and space in such a way that it sucks you in and demands your attention, evokes mystery, confusion, wonder. For now I’m just posting a link to his main RAWORKS site, but will post more later. See his photo of the lovely Wendy, an Austin makeup artist and musician, one of the first photos of his that caught my attention, and the <a href="“>Howlin’ Wolf poster he produced for my Howlin’ Wolf Birthday Tribute show at the Continental Club last June.
"Working Women," one of many pictures by Ricardo that would make a great Bryan Ferry cover.
