“Yearnings of success & acheivement haunt me in my sleep, startle me awake, inspire journeys of sensual exploration & at times suffocate my breath; these yearnings come in many visual manifestations & demand to be inhaled, explored & conquered; these yearnings beckon & insist on being shared with the universe so it’s creative principles live eternal like my soul.”
an excerpt from runirone’s Artist’s Statement
runirone shoots contemporary nude art for international gallery exhibits, fine art magazines & books. He’s a contemporary artist & director of photography. runi says that strangers call him “the naked hobo” when he’s in the streets photographing beautiful women & painting cities with sexy stories. His style is vintage-retro erotica. runi does not follow, imitate or duplicate the styles of others, preferring to work with like-minded creative souls.
runirone is passionate and provocative when presenting his work. ruin says, “I play with abandon, choose with no regrets, practice wellness & live life to the fullest; i study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing & dream while others are wishing.”
runirone has shot commercial photography for Victoria’s Secret, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Allure, Photo.fr, Nike & the PGA Golf Tour. His “alter-ego” runirone, which is much different than that which his commercial clients are familiar represents aw, un-cut, unpolished, gritty & sensually thought provoking imagery that explores the inhibitions & vulnerabilities of society. These works are a sampling of his Artist’s Statement. Check out more of his work along with his full statement by clicking here.
__________________________________________________________________________runirone’s disclaimer: I PRIMARILY SHOOT NUDES under my runirone “alter-ego”. WHY? IT PAYS VERY WELL! If you are a model & wish for me to shoot a more conventional set for you, I respectfully decline. Sorry, but helping you play dress-up to impress your facebook & twitter followers isn’t on my “to do list” unless you are willing to hire my team of hair, make-up and wardrobe pros & compensate us our ridiculous fees. I PRODUCE NUDE WORK TO GET IT PUBLISHED OR SOLD; not for personal reasons or portfolio building. I have specific goals & would appreciate the opportunity to work with models who exhibit creativity, passion & perseverance!
