Shot of photographer Alessio Albi, these women's portraits are beautifully captured by combining the area around them and subtle emotion. The ongoing series by the Italian artist are mainly photographed in low light scenarios. Inspired by nature, fog, forests, water and landscapes, the use of natural shades and earthy tones is very important. Albi is also inspired by the community of artists on the internet. Being online allows him to discover the artwork of others while also showcasing his own work to a varied audience.

The women's portraits are for the most part done outdoors, so to use the surrounding space to add ambiance and atmosphere. When shot indoors, the emotion is usually even more palpable. Typically his subjects are not smiling, but appear lost in thought.
