Eugenio first popped onto my radar somewhere around 2007, and it was love at first sight. Every image he’s produced since has seduced me with that perfect blend of sex, death and romance.
Working with a visual narrative, the Spaniard’s themes often include references to dark European fairytales, historical allusions and pure fantasy. Each theatrical cinematic moment feels frozen in another time. Weaving these rich themes into fashion and beauty campaigns, his directorial talents are obvious.
Much of the believability of each story falls to the flawless styling, elaborate set-design and cinematic lighting. It’s only natural that a photographer with such strong storytelling ability would begin to work in film. Although I miss my weekly fix of his sumptuous fashion shoots, I’m lapping up his moving images with a goose bump inclination.
It’s no wonder he’s one of Vogue’s (Spain) most celebrated photographers. His relatively recent foray into cine is a match made so clearly it’s a wonder that he hasn’t shot a feature. I wait in anticipation!
Now go lose countless hours while perusing his endless portfolios of vogue editorials and enticing commercial campaigns.
