Son of a Romanian photographer and a Mexican mother, Enrique Badulescu was born in Mexico City in the 1960s. He grew up in a vibrant culture scene, heavily influenced by surrealism. He returned to Mexico after graduating from the Bayrische Staatslehranstalt for Fotografie program in Munich and travelled extensively around the country, later moving to New York City where he started working as an assistant for fashion photographers.
In 1988 he moved to London, where his career took off as a travel and fashion photographer. Enrique Badulescu is counted among the top fashion photographers of today. His work is an ode to the intensity of color. His extravagant compositions are submerged in an inherently passionate and energetic vibe. In 1992 he returned to New York City and regularly visits Tulum, to the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean, which he uses as a frequent backdrop for shoots with French Vogue, Harpers Bazaar or H&M. In 2008 Badulescu published his first book Sueños, followed by a solo exhibition in June 2010 at the Milk Gallery in New York.
