When all things align perfectly in the quest to write a story of passion – in this case a story told in pictures, not words – what results is more than a photoshoot; it’s a visual rhapsody. A story in free-flowing form, told of two lovers, it’s one in which setting and styling convey as much a mood as the credible emotions displayed by both protagonists – played by actress Gabriella Wright and model Nicolas Baisin.
But while the idea of having an abandoned castle near Paris as your backdrop may lean easily towards romance, photographer Pierre Dal Corso paints a picture of the passionate, hungry side of love. Every image, with light streaming through windows and hot sensuality as palpable as the white billows of smoke, brings life into the dust of the long forsaken castle rooms.
Immaculately styled by Natalia Yakovleva, with hair by Stephane Delahaye and makeup by Christina Lutz, you can view the full shoot by Pierre Dal Corso (pierredalcorso.com) for Collezioni Russia at the gallery.
