Roberto Duran, a Mexican born artist from the city of Guadalajara Mexico, has adopted Sydney as his home. Working as an architect and photographer for the past 15 years, Roberto’s artistic vision is strengthened by the unique perspectives of the two diverse cultures and is characterized by creativity, colours, emotion, and style. As Roberto Duran describes it, “When something excites you, my first instinct is to share it. That is what happens to me with photography”. His work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it’s erotica, art nude, movement or just the perfect moment. Roberto Duran’s extensive experience in film and digital photography has seen him work as a freelancer for major magazines in Mexico and around the world.
