I thought “Simplicity” was splendid.
I think there is a consistency in your eye and editing: details of hands and faces, seeing through windows, looking at people at the distance. Disciplined. I like the surface. It’s very calm, restrained. Well done.
— Bill Hunt, famed photography collector, curator and consultant
Raphael’s images are poetic and tender – encouraging the viewer to dwell on simple and unassuming moments where a glance, a reflection or a texture become something momentarily profound. Their beauty is in how they seem at once impulsive and considered, maybe even inevitable
— Ralph Wilson, Co-founder of the Life Framer Award
