Labro is though more interested in pure artistic expression than in his bread and butter fashion photography and continues exhibiting and creating art works between his busy schedule. Photography is his main medium during his 20 years of photographic career but he creates art photography in unconventional ways.

Summer Collection 2014

You are cordially invited to enter the Experimental Labro Artorium for Metaphysical Matters and Antimatters of Rafael Labro in a fusion of 3 light frequencies. (See Collection from the Shelters)

SALSAMIA accentuates through Labro’s keen eye the profound relationship between mankind, the earth and the universe that surrounds and watches over us represented by the ever serene, ever wise series of dreams become reality. ~ Sophie Dali 2014

Lamina by Labro

In “LAMINA” we see the continuation of Labro‘s stunning vision and revelation of Universal Astral Synchronicity transformed into a visual rebirth of the present which heralds the promise of a reawakened enlightened future.

Labro’s vibrant, abstract style creates a visually mesmerizing experience that inspires the mind and reaches deep within the emotion of the viewer.

Here Labro beckons to us. Daring us to step past the thin film that separates us from the reality of  LAMINA. That place where the Goddesses created everything, seen and unseen as told by the indigenous tribes from which we all sprung.

These are the tales of our beginnings. Long lost to us consciously, they are here waiting to be reintroduced by Labro. Taking us not only to the origin of everything, but flinging us deep into the universe and beyond.

Celebrating the eternity that is perennially the now. Here he takes us and leads us in to experience the universal truths. In each of Rafael’s stunning pieces there is embedded the forthright yet elusive to mankind’s mind, the mysterious Eye of The Creation.

Using the human flesh as his canvas. Using ancient symbols and images, Labro touches the primal force of nature., we are given not only a visual piece to admire, but are taken on a journey that touches our subconscious and stirs the collective memory that takes us to the dawn of existence.

A perfect harmonic convergence of knowledge and understanding.

Altogether in Peace, we coincide within a galactic homo sapiens societies’ network. And within a few billion years, over a million cosmic races travel freely in space.

The Creation is universal and eternal.

Every form of life harmonizes to the Creation and makes a part of it.

The Creation never gives commands.

Nobody occurred on Earth by Order of the Creation.
