This is the work of 38 year old Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco who is considered by many to be the most important photographer on the international scene. Mr. Recuenco's amazingly evocative, pictorial photography and unique chiaroscuro style have earned him comparison with such great Spanish masters as Goya, El Greco and Zurbaran. Mr. Recuenco,who has earned multiple accolades for his fantastic work such as the Lion of Gold and Bronze for his work for Playstation at the 2005 Cannes Festival, has done work for such powerhouses as Lavazza, Nina Ricci, Pull & Bear, Magnum, Mango, Le Bon Marché, Vogue, Maxim, Saint Laurent and many others. This is a 2003 campaign for Lucky Strike cigarettes.
I hate the cigarettes but I absolutely love the amazing photographic work! More to come from this fantastic artist. For now I leave you with this small gallery.
