If you're like me and haven't taken a trip this summer, let the Tiiu Kuik Vogue Latin America August 2011 editorial be your surrogate vacation adventure.

Shot in the gorgeous mountainous region of Peru, the Tiiu Kuik Vogue Latin America August 2011 shoot is a perfect example of how an expansive and lush landscape can transform a relatively by the numbers high-fashion shoot into something special and distinguishable.

The Tiiu Kuik Vogue Latin America editorial was shot by veteran fashion photographer Michael Filonow, and his experience is evident in the contrasts displayed in his shots. Filonow is able to deftly highlight Kuik's extravagant outfits -- supplied by Roberto Cavalli, Dior, and Anna Sui -- while also managing to make the staggering beauty of the backdrop a star of the shoot.

The August issue of Vogue Latin America is on newsstands now.
