Some people see life more vividly than others do.

Some of those people, especially these days, use cameras to capture that vivid spectacle. Because, hell, if someone has a phone, they pretty much have a camera, too: Especially these days.

But what’s exceedingly rare, always and forever, are people who can transfer the stunning whole of their visual experience into an expression that can be shared by others. What’s never usual is someone who can capture the relentless kinetic miracle of existence in all its aspects ~ the urban and jagged, the natural and unfabricated, the darling and delightful and debauched and destroyed ~ and bring those images to eyes formerly innocent of the glory and glamor, the triumphs and trash, that shine everywhere in this complex life.

Ricardo Acevedo is one such artist, a photographer whose untouched portraits often outdo what others attempt in Photoshop and whose manipulated works can express a thinking kaleidoscope’s dream of sanity. Illustration, abstraction, machination. Narrative sequences like noir gone neon. There seems nothing beyond the skill of this man and his lens, which is why his works are worth watching: To see life in all its incarnations as vividly as possible.

Tides

In the tidal swells of our life, the pools, eddies and tidal basins hold on to emotional need and memory. We sit on the shore, always waiting for the tides return. Battered boats with still the love of the sea.
