Las Vegas’ Erotic Heritage Museum is a sex positive exhibition space, operating with an ethos that sexual pleasure is an intrinsic aspect of the
human experience and celebrations of human sexuality should be made available to all.
For Artist of the Month the Museum is featuring Alberto A. Navarro II. He brings the delicacy of the human form to life through unique light – play.
Albert in his own words:
I am a Las Vegas-based, published, international Fine Art photographer also well-versed in Fashion and Glamour photography. As a photographer I believe in diversity; my projects have NO body-type, height requirements, piercing or tattoo restrictions, nor ethnicity preferences. I shoot beauty in all its forms, and see beauty in all its forms!
My creative journey began as far back as I can remember. I’ve been shooting various styles of photography for over 35-years. I like to think of myself as a Renaissance-man, a creative thinker, and have been involved in art and music my whole life. I come from a creative family of authors, musicians, painters, and sculptors to name a few; this had a huge influence on me. My first paid photo shoot was at the age of 16 and I’ve not stepped away from the camera since.
Some of my photographic influences have been, and continue to be, Ansel Adams, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz, Joe McNally, Zack Arias, and Patrick Di Fruscia to name a few. I believe in making my own road, but use their work for inspiration rather than emulation.
To create photographs which cause the viewer to experience my photos in the following ways:
Emotionally: They should appeal to or arouse your emotions;
Intimately: They should evoke a very warm and friendly feeling;
Provokingly: They should feel charged, edgy, exciting, piquing, provocative, stimulating;
Revolutionary: They should bring about a fundamental change to photography; and
Sensually: They should produce physical and/or sexual pleasure when viewed.
You can see the works of Alberto A. Navarro II at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas from September 1st on in the lobby Gallery.
