A new luxury publication showcasing the work of Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco has been published by teNeues. Published in tandem with the photographer’s recent exhibition at CWC Gallery in Berlin, ''Revue: Eugenio Recuenco'' is the first book to present the full scope of Recuenco’s work.

Eugenio Recuenco (b. 1968) is an acclaimed photographer and film director, whose achievements in the fashion (he is known for his collaborations with fashion magazines, such as Vogue Spain and Madame Figaro) and advertisement industries have brought him numerous awards and accolades and world-wide recognition to boot. Highly cinematic in style, his still images are shot in elaborate handmade sets and tend to portray a fantastical combination of fairytale innocence with a dark, gothic atmosphere. Always interested in telling a story, Recuenco loves to bring imaginary worlds and characters to life (notably seen in his videos for Rammstein, Loewe, Chivas and Nina Ricci, to name a few). Known not only for his highly theatrical and monumental sets, his masterful treatment of light is very obviously influenced by European fine art, especially the work of the Renaissance masters, Pablo Picasso and Tamara de Lempica.

''Revue: Eugenio Recuenco'' was published by teNeues in September 2013 and is available in both a standard hardcover version and a ''Collector’s Edition'' of 50 copies (which includes an original, signed photo-print).
