The Balance by Antonio Banderas
Actor Antonio Banderas held the first public exhibition of his photographs at Instituto Cervantes in New York City on May 12. The exhibition, titled Secrets on Black, was held in conjunction with the launch of his his new men’s fragrance, The Secret. According to a WENN news article at IMDB, Banderas has been taking photographs for years, but never considered exhibiting them to the public until it was suggested by Puig, the perfume company which produces his fragrances. They based the name and packaging of the new fragrance on one of Banderas’ photos. The images in the Secrets on Black collection are based on various aspects of Spanish culture and include several images of nude or nearly nude women.
Six of the photos were donated to CharityBuzz and were auctioned to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
