Fotografía de los Sueños

Falling down one of those unexpected interwebs rabbit holes today led me to the online galleries of Madrid-based photographer Eugenio Recuenco, and I was sufficiently enamored to want to share.

I spent hours poring over the deep archives on his Web site, mesmerized. I didn't love all of his work ~ it's a very diverse portfolio ~ but the ones I love... I love very, very much.

He's a master of creating moody, surrealistic tableaus that are ripe with the promise of some fantastical and possibly disturbing tale.

I've heard his pictures described as cinematic. It's perhaps because of the meticulous attention to detail in the art direction, and a dreamlike quality that I find enchanting.

It occurs to me now that the first print issue of my beloved Coilhouse Magazine had a lush spread and interview with him. He has also made a few short films that are worth perusing even if some of them were originally perfume ads or music videos.

Thanks to my new blog obsession HauteMacabre for leading me to this work, and to the lovely TotusMel for leading me to HauteMacabre.

That is an amazing collection, and so glad I could contribute to your obsessive behavior!

Come now, music videos are one of the freest forms of short film out there. You get paid, and you can be as weird as you want! ;-)
