His work has been featured in international magazines such as Vanity Fair, Vogue, and GQ . His commercials for Nina Ricci are infamous for their ethereal beauty.
His images have won countless awards and have managed to impress even the most jaded critics in the fashion word with his creativity and flair for the theatrics.
In his latest creative project Eugenio Recuenco, has turned his fashion editorial into voyage 20,000 leagues under the sea for a glimpse of the trapped souls on the ill-fated mission of the SS Kursk.
In August in 2000, in the cold waters of the Barents Sea, the submarine KURSK exploded without warning trapping the crew of 118. While some argue the crew died instantly some experts say the crew was able to survive for several days. LAS ALMAS DEL KURSK takes a Recuencian look into the untimely demise of the Russian sailors.
It is these final moments of the Russian crew, which inspired Recuenco to complete a fashion editorial with the help of Spain’s FASHION DREAM TEAM. To bring his vision to life Mr. Recuenco enlisted the help of Eric Dover, art director for most of Recuenco´s shoots along with stylist Macarena Nuñez and make-up artist Lewis Amarante. The results were an editorial bold in concept and high on art.
It is these images that Make Recuenco´s work so fascinating, his ability to turn a tragedy into a beautifully executed conceptual piece is what made Lavazza Calendar come knocking at his door back in 2007. His relentless vision and dedication to his art speaks volumes about his craft.
The issue, which hits newsstands this week, is a great example of the power of Recuenco´s work and the unique point of view of Spanish Fashion in the 21st century.
