Archival Fine Art Photography


“The images of photographer Ron Paras demonstrate a flair for the dramatic-outrageous, yet gracefully understated; pushing the boundaries, yet showing remarkable restraint; depicting the familiar, yet paired with elements distinctly and refreshingly unexpected. Within the seeming simplicity of a photograph, we find what we crave so much: the gem of seeing things anew– the gem of pleasant surprise. It’s no accident that images such as “Gothic,” “Medusa” and “Evening Nude”
echo the look of great European film directors of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s or the audacious spreads of haute couture magazines. Each photograph reflects Ron’s professional experience in the realms of fashion photography, filmmaking and multimedia productions.”
