Born in Madrid 38 years ago (1970), Eugenio Recuenco is now one of the most important Spanish photographers on the international scene. Endowed with a brilliant sensibility for chiaroscuro, this photographer is considered as a true heir of the grand masters of Spanish classical painting like Goya, El Greco and above all Zurbarán. He produces highly evocative scenes, and his photos reveal a mysterious world from which you cannot escape once you stared.
Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco is revered as one of the best fashion photographers of our time. His work is creative, technically irreproachable and visually stunning. It's no wonder he is one the most sought after artists by the biggest ad agencies to take the pictures for the campaigns of some of the most widely known brands in high fashion.
Recuenco's CV is impressive. He has taken photos for Diesel, Mango, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Vuitton, among others. Nowadays, he works exclusively for Vogue. Master of a very peculiar style, which Versace called 'cinema-like', Recuenco fills his pictures with an aura of mystery and exoticness which takes us back to visual clichés, that closely resemble the world of cinema, especially adventure and fantasy films. It isn't hard to identify references to great movies.
The images are displayed in a sequence, as if they were a photogram, and tell a particular story; the mastery of colour and light is complete. The outcome: photographs of great beauty that superbly convey the intended commercial message and still manage to look stunning.
