eugenio recuenco

Oui, femmes, quoi qu’on puisse dire, vous avez le fatal pouvoir de nous jeter par un sourire dans l’ivresse ou le désespoir.A Mademoiselle Alfred de Musset, 1839 Perhaps too attached to the world of tales and especially appreciating Le Petit Prince, certainly the most beautiful book ever made, the editorial board admires the work of Eugenio, who remains one of the world’s greatest contemporary photographers. Although already published in its third issue of Normal, we were eager to show his new work and some of his older photos that we couldn’t publish then, due to lack of space. Now monopolized by his new direction in cinema, Eugenio focuses on his movies and short films projects, «La Segunda Derrota», or «(W)Hole Time», setting aside his large photographic productions. Even if Eugenio’s photography…

“ Il y a de la mort dans la pulsion de vie, Thanatos fait partie d’Eros autant qu’ils s’opposent, l’un et l’autre construisent l’homme en le détruisant.”Pascal BrucknerUne photo ? C’est l’instant qui s’arrête, les sentiments qui demeurent et la vie qui s’en va. Jérôme Touzalin What kind of imagery were you surrounded by and exposed to that you feel has left a mark on you to this day ? I grew up in Glasgow until the age of 10. Then my dad got a promotion at work and my family relocated to Thirsk in North Yorkshire for four years, before moving to St Albans in Hertfordshire. I wasn’t really surrounded by much imagery growing up. My parents were lower-middle class. Art and culture wasn’t something they ever had any contact with and…

LA BEAUTÉ EST LA VENGEANCE DES FEMMES. Serge Gainsbourg Peter Coulson is The black and white photographer, his blacks are profound and intense, giving a theatrical rendering as well as a deliciously dramatic tension. Women are embedded in his images like fixed-gazed, imperturbable modern goddesses. The style is impactful, the décor is minimalist, even rare. The space is that of his studio, on a white background, most of the time empty, in order to persuade the spectator to focus on the model, and on the most important part: her eyes, the very essence of the image. No erotic connotations or exacerbated sensuality is to be found in Peter’s work. Women do not smile. They are modern nymphs; young, cold, pagan virgin beauties with emaciated faces. Inspired by people, places, objects, world events and most…

irina ionesco

« Photography is for me an element mostly poetic. I see it as a theatrical exercise where I create the incessant and obsessive rendering of all my fantasies ». These are the words of the famous photographer, Irina Ionesco There are encounters which leave a mark on you, by their intensity and because of their emotional as well as creative depths, by the moment shared perhaps, as an impalpable magnetic pull. Even if we had stayed a little shy with her during our first interview, the moment was rich. The editorial board of Normal Magazine has followed and admired the work of Irina Ionesco for a long time, from the very moment where we discovered it. A unique ambiance, a dark and gloomy atmosphere, a jolt both erotic and emotional. Then we…
