Barcelona-based fashion photographer Txema Yeste has an eye for hazy, dreamy shoots judging by the work featured here. From windswept hair to streaks of waning sunlight, Yeste captures a decidedly ephemeral look. Some of the photographs border on haunting. The ghost-like visages and sweeping figures depicted in the shoots work toward elegance.

Fashion photography, when done poorly, can be banal and boring. However, when done correctly, it approaches art. Indeed, the purpose of the fashion photographer is to capture in his or her models something that other less talented, less skilled people would miss. Yeste has found an elusive beauty in these photographs. That is, his work is obviously beautiful but to find and capture such beauty requires a talented photographer.
