Artistry echos in the background leaving moody elements of anarchy to ache from below. What we see isn’t the whole picture, as the body delights in secrets being dictated from beneath. Nicola Knels keeps things focused as only two shots show any form of high fashion.

Harper’s Bazaar Turkey

Here we witness something that may seem subtle, or worse, not loud enough to get the attention required to deem it successful.
