by Samantha Kate Jourdan
Ladies and Gentleman, we present to you Paco Peregrín, a talent with a style that has earned him credibility as one of the most exciting fashion photographer’s working in advertising, beauty, art and fashion today. Paco’s unique style, is instantly recognizable by his use of mysterious juxtapositions, fusing hyper-real futurism with high-end beauty images. Paco manages to create his own fashion trends and stories through forward thinking, by combining generic public trends and concepts with an almost traditionally artistic point of view. His outcomes, elegant, perturbed, mysterious and with content that never fails to intrigue his audience.
Paco was born in Almeria, Spain. A Bachelor of Fine Art at Seville University, his reputation in image and modern expressive arts is recognized in various prestigious institutes including Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London) and the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art. His background in design, communication, theater and painting have all attributed to his style today, creating a mix of avant garde methods which we can interpret as weird, but SERIOUSLY wonderful!
Paco has shot and art-directed high-profile campaigns for global household names like Nike, Diesel, Adidas, Levi’s, EMI Music and Cosmopolitan. He’s also headed photo-shoots for many international magazines, such as; Vanity Fair (Italy), Glamour (Spain), ELLE (México), Zink (USA), Neo2 (Spain) and Flux (UK). His work is present in numerous significant art collections around the world.
His remarkable skill of controlling the fine line between commercial success and art forever captivates us and working with him gives us the inspiration that not ‘everything has been done before’, not like this, not like Paco.
Hope you enjoy his work as much as we do.
