Eugenio Recuenco

I’m working on making it possible to upload a little avatar next to your name when you post a comment. Stay tuned! In the meantime, I bring you one of my favorite modern fashion photographers: Eugenio Recuenco. I chose to post about him now to counterbalance my Decline of Fashion Photography post: see, it’s not all doom and gloom!

There’s just so much to see on his site. I love this noir alien encounter story, and this one about matadors, and this creepy hotel shoot with elements of The Shining. I love his nautical themes: there’s one story about shipwrecked passengers who make it to the shore, and another about Titantic, with a gallery each before and after the collision with the iceberg. There’s a sexy story about fencing (the only sport I ever liked!), and tons more. Visiting his site is like re-reading a good book; every time, you find something new.

    The fencing and Titanic stories are my favorite. Especially the scene with the passengers being washed ashore – the dramatic silent film-ish makeup is perfect there.

    And this outfit – I need it.

    Mmmmmm….. Eugenio Recuenco is the best! A great, Po-Mo example of fashion-meets-art indeed.

    Loved his work since I first caught wind of it…2 years ago? 3? So, I was behind. Didn’t know he did ze Rosenrot shoot, dog bless ‘im.

    I love Recuenco… his use of muted colours in his pictures and the fact that he devotes so much time/budget for set design make his work look so painterly…
