A Tale of Two Cities...

I wouldn't have expected such a great shoot from Elle China...

Photographer: Benoit Peverelli
Models: Liu Wen & Mathilde Franchon

I love the crossover style in which they have done this, an exchange of cultures for the Liu and Mathilde. The shots from each city just completely contrast in culture and the concept of each transends so beautifully from the way Peverlli has shot them. I love the idea of elegancy in the Paris shots and the nightlife ambiguity of the Shanghai ones. Paris by day and Shanghai by night. The third image in particular is my favourite, because I love the shadow cast and her longingly looking out over paris. The Eiffel Tower is subtle yet so important.
Each city is captured in its element. I want to go!
