Take a trip down the canal with Chiaroscuro by Fabiana and Carlo Nicora, a romantic shoot that channels Euro chic. The Nicoras have been together for over a decade and make quite the creative duo. Natives to Italy, but now residing in London, the couple aims to capture the unique and mysterious feeling of Venice that they hold near and dear. Model Polina Chevan moves through the motions of high fashion tourism, showcasing the water city's beauty with outfits by stylist Kati Brugnoli.

Fabiana and Carlo explain their combined inspiration: “The perfect image, for us, has very little to do with the technical side of it and more with the human involvement. We mainly share the same vision – with a personal twist of course – but essentially we both look for a particular something in the eyes of our subjects that makes them beautiful and unique." The exquisite creative chemistry between them and their subjects shines through their lens and connects with viewers in a way that sparks emotion.

Implications - Photoshoots that are inspired by particular cities capture these areas' essence and ambiance through the subjects' clothes and eyes. Consumers who dream of traveling to the places where these shoots or set, or those who live and experience them daily, are excited by the familiar, yet alternative perspective these shoots offer.
