Last weekend we attended the opening of “Raul Higuera – Couture Shock” (through June 20th) at the Vered Gallery in East Hampton.
Couture Shock features highlights of Higuera’s wonderfully bizarre, sexy surreal fashion stories straight from the pages of Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar. His Fall 2010 shoot opened the Balmain advertising campaign in Paris for American Vogue. Jetting between Europe, Asia, North and South America, Higuera shoots campaigns for Latin American Vogue, Paris Vogue, American Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, and Vanity Fair. Higuera has photographed the great models. Naomi Campbell counts him as a friend and working partner.
This year will include shoots for Pucci, Lanvin, Dior and Chanel. With spreads in the world’s top fashion magazines for the top designers and campaigns with clients such as Mont Blanc, Max Mara, Swarovski, Paco Rabanne (just to name a few), Higuera is squarely poised to be counted among the most sought after photographers in the world. And he is a nice guy, too!
