Picasso Portraits As Real-Life Fashion Photos

Forty years after his death, Pablo Picasso’s influence still looms large — especially in his home country, Spain. So it’s no wonder that Madrid-based fashion photographer Eugenio Recuenco feels like he owes the painter a little tribute. Taking some of Picasso’s best-known portraits of women, Recuenco dressed his models in stylized clothing and added angular lines and fake eyeballs to their faces to match the paintings as closely as possible. The finishing touch was post-processing to distort the film and make the photograph match the art in terms of coloring and mood. See the series, which we spotted via PetaPixel, below, and take a look at Recuenco website to see more of his art.
