Eugenio Recuenco

Eugenio Recuenco

Today I wanted to showcase one of my absolutely favorite photographers.

I first saw his work in a series he did for Vogue entitled “Cuentos” where he reinvisioned and brought to life classic fairytales such as Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella. These images brought me so much curiosity that I looked him up only to find an extremely rich body of work that further sparked my interest.

Pulling on diverse references ranging from Batman, to orientalism and early sci-fi, Recuenco always brings a sense of whim and other worldliness to his images. His photographs are highly theatrical but it is their resemblence to paintings that I often find most striking.

His use of light, color and composition reminds me of the work of the Spanish masters more than any precedents in photography. It is all these elements that somehow have magically combined to form Eugenio Recuenco’s genius.
