Looking at the works of Eugenio Recuenco, you can notice their similarity with the paintings of Renaissance artists. The Spanish fashion photographer was so passionate about painting that this could not but affect his pictures. In particular, he was inspired by the work of P. Picasso and T. Lempick. Thinking over the idea for each photo shoot, Rekuenko is guided only by his own views. In his opinion, success comes to the photographer when he stops worrying about how his work will be perceived and customized to a publicly approved template. Eugenio did not always take into account the wishes of customers. It was important for him to enjoy working on a project.

In the pictures you can often see characters from fairy tales. He focuses on certain elements, highlighting them as bright or different from the color used in the entire composition of the palette. It is interesting that his wife is engaged in retouching. Perhaps that is why the work, despite the presence in them of the Gothic style, is filled with sensuality.
