WHAT DOES R54 STAND FOR?
Ramon is not only a Photographer, he is also a MAGICIAN. He came up with the name R54 because he wanted to incorporate his magic. The R stands for RAMON and the 54 stands for 54 cards in a deck, because when he performs his MAGIC he uses the 2 JOKERS..
If you ever meet him in person ask him to show you a MAGIC TRICK.
