A few months ago, I saw a Facebook post about Eugenio Recuenco's Revue. The post had a picture of a fellow photographer sitting in a local bookstore, thumbing through Revue with a smile on his face. Respecting the talent of the photographer making the post, I decided to blindly purchase the photobook. I now know exactly why my colleague was smiling (as well as why they were checking the book out at the bookstore). Revue is 300 pages of inspiration.
Published by teNeues press, Revue contains a massive volume of work and is everything you could want in a photobook. Quite frankly, it is luxurious (as is the price tag). Bringing imaginary worlds and their characters alive, the spanish photographer's vision is without parallel. Call Eugenio Recuenco whatever you want. Portrait photographer. Fashion shooter. Surrealist. It doesn't really matter what you label him. The fact remains that the Spaniard cannot be easily defined by quick descriptors. It would probably be best to simply say that he is one of the most inspirational visual artists alive.
If you have a little extra spending money, Recuenco's Revue is an excellent buy. Not only will you be able to familiarize yourself with one of the best photographers of our time, you can use the tome as a flower press or coffee table conversation starter.
Purchase the book with free international shipping.
