  • Catalogue Essay

    Txema Yeste created this exquisite portrait of Dutch beauty Roos Abels for the December/January 2016-17 issue of Numéro. Here, we see an angelic face partially concealed by a delicate peacock feather; the resulting effect is that of a uniquely ethereal image that immediately transports us to a timeless dimension. Yeste has chosen to print this photograph using the laborious dye transfer process, which possesses a greater colour gamut and tonal scale than any other photographic process. The unique dye transfer print featured here is remarkable in its depth and beauty. Yeste’s work is widely published in such influential magazines as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and Numéro and he has shot campaigns for many top brands, including Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Lancôme and Viktor & Rolf. His work has been exhibited internationally, including ArtisTree’s Beyond Fashion in Hong Kong (2019) and is held in the collection of the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona.
