i begin with an idea, and then it becomes something else.

Eugenio Recuenco is wonderful at creating a scene, determining a stranger‘s point of view, telling us just enough of a story for us to want more. Here he has photographed models to resemble Picasso’s paintings. During his cubist period, Picasso’s ladies were awkward, and feeble, and his lines, most remarkably the eyes, were rendered surrealistically. We may say Recuenco has made a homage to the painter, as many liberties were taken with poses, and garments. The effect of this homage is forced in some photos more than others. The visual patina the photographer has used both in camera filters and backgrounds creates a weird and dreamy hallucinatory woman.
