“There are professional photographers… and there are imagists — artists who magically transform their camera into magic wands: a combination of concept, form, and light, resulting in passionate portraits of human emotion that takes one’s breath away. Rafael Vasquez truly wins my admiration and respect.”

For me, the joy of the creative process of portraiture is the sublime path of happiness in my life. The visceral experience of search and enlightenment is as important to my sustenance as food and drink.

I work passionately to use my creativity to stand up for our heroes and protect our culture against the villains. The euphoria of the power and the emotion of a truly successful portrait of those I genuinely admire and revere, is, as I practice it, a work of art. I believe that.
