Vicente Esteban

Vicente Esteban Abad obviously likes bodies and persons. Nude photography, portraits… the people.

Within this forest of individuals and couples, that is to say, of unique or double bodies, alone or in the company of others, the work of Esteban Abad, from Alicante, is getting bigger. With resolve and sense of reality, with patience, with an outstanding touch of generosity towards the others, accumulated in the way he dresses or strips them, always accompanied by the beauty of the best lighting, which emerges from his eye of photographer.

Therefore, it is not surprising that his daily work is basically focused on studio photography, social reportage and nude photography, without excluding other projects related to advertising: catalogues, shoes, accessories, food, etc.

The fusion between the photographic interests of Vicente Esteban and his daily professional activity is so balanced that, occasionally, many of his works become a personal work of art.
