Luis Durante

Luis Durante
Born in Soria, a place some consider the most romantic area of Spain, Luis Durante came to this world in 1955. He spent his formative years growing up in Madrid where he remembers sketching and painting constantly. When he was seventeen he left home to live in what he describes as a "hippy community". He fell in with a group of actors there who were part of a local theatre group and soon started joining in their shows. They ended up traveling throughout Spain and England giving street performances. At twenty-three he moved once again, this time to Paris to study photography. He stayed there for four years before returning to Spain where he took up work in public relations.

Luis has been a lifelong student of art and famous artists. He is especially drawn to the highly stylized work of the Surrealist and Symbolist painters, but also finds inspiration in the work of many photographers (Saudek, Blum, Berquet, Hamilton) and writers (Baudelaire, Becquer, Safo, Stoker, Poe, Byron). His personal work bears an obvious influence of these masters.

The photography of Luis Durante is an artistic delight. Much of it possesses something of a painterly quality giving it a quality of being created by some unknown master from a bygone era. His use of delicate young women strengthens this attribute and further provides a powerful air of enchantment. It is simply breathtaking. We feel this is one art photographer for whom great things are destined.
