ruud van empel images focus on children in both quasi natural settings. His cibachrome method produces such vibrant images. His depiction of a black Venus is amazing. With their super dark skin, is seem to be a study in contrast. Then there are his brothers and sisters portraiture. The children seem so perfect they are not real but they are beautiful to look at. I’d describe Emples’ work as daring, fresh and beautiful. The art world would agree. One of his pieces, (world #17 2006) recently sold at auction for over 116, 500 dollars!
