About me
I see the model / artist relationship as collaboration. You know yourself better then I do. All I can do is create a comfortable well lit environment for art to happen, via trust and wild artistic vision.

Real passive models are hard for me to work with. You have to able to put yourself trully "out there" for us to really create something one of a kind, and I think I'm pretty safe saying neither of us want something in they're portfolio thats been done a thousand times.

One last point. This is not a hard and fast rule, but I'm reluctant to work with heavily tattooed models. 1st off the ink limits what I can visualize compositionally, and 2nd, out of respect for my fellow artists (tattoo artists), unless you can show some sort of proof that the TA has signed off/ok'd photos of their work, I think they should be given credit in the composition. All this just adds an unnessasary layer of complication to things that I just try to avoid.

Just being honest and up front about things. I'm open to all questions and will answer all ASAP.


Color, mystery, humor, beauty, erotica, drama, strength....

Our interactions with others and our ongoing delving into the different aspects of ourselves. The depth of these mysteries are the things that fascinate me. If only sometimes barely perceptible, our inner and outer variations are almost always most notable in our passions, our physical and spiritual passions.

Every form I see is a microcosm. Shadow and light as storytellers working the contours and textures.

Beyond human inclination, speaking of the condition in all its ugliness and beauty. The places we put ourselves in the search for “IT”, the places we end up, letting others define “IT” for us.

My intent is to haunt you with yourself.

Complied and written by Harold McMillan of DiverseArts Production Group, with the help and consent of r/ace.

In the early '00's r/ace pioneered the process/concept of photographic painting, described here by Stacee Millangue of Austin's "Idea Gallery" as "...r/ace's, work like "Through Her" ...defines the possibilities of modern photography. His image of a female nude also contains several layers, looking similar to a ghostly colored x-ray. After taking several photos of his subject, he printed the film, purposefully over-exposing some parts, lightening and darkening others. He then digitally created a collage and added organic layer of wax and pigment."

Or as England based creative director Ali Hobb's is quoted as saying, "r/ace is a sensory genius"

In '05 r/ace started the "She Rocks" Calendar which was a celebration of the rockin', in both music and attitude, women of the Austin music scene.

r/ace regularly interacts with DiversArts "New East" Gallery, JadeGate, Pump Project, GAT5, WET Studio & Salon, The Projex Gallery, Octopus Club ArtErotica and Continental Gallery.

Recently r/ace was excepted in the prestigious Center for Fine Art Photography 2008 "International Artful Nude Competition"

http://www. c4fap. org/exhibitors/2008Nude/ExhibitorsAnnounce. asp

Out of hundreds of national and international entries. Excepted was r/ace's "Working Woman". The judge was none other than the son of America's premiere fine-art nude photographer Edward Weston... Kim Weston.

r/ace is presently continuing to plumb the depths of his and our psyche with perversions of light and form via lense and print.

My newly published book "Interloper" available at: http://polymarketpress.net/books/interloper/

"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."
