Portrait Gallery: Álvaro Villarrubia

Spanish shutterbug Álvaro Villarrubia can take my picture any time he likes.

Some of his portraits have their Warholish undertones:

The Once and Future Prince of Puke

Others give a fresh, chic twist to star portraits:

Carmen Maura, Reina de las Películas

Others simply document the loveliness set before them:

I can has Javier Bardem?

While others combine simple sets, an artful use of props, and fashion to tell an enigmatic story:

Amanda Lepore; yes, dear, you have breasts. We know. Put them away.

One knew that the boho scene in Madrid was fabulous; it's good to know it's being so fittingly captured on film.
