In these works, Joâo Carlos pairs the literature of love tragedies through the ages with the techniques of outdoor fashion shoots. These images have a composition and balance inspired by the masters of painting and echo their work also in that these stories are the subjects that the great painters would have taken on. Centuries-old castles and palaces in Portugal create a fairy tale setting for the characters to play out their doomed love.

“The location is crucial. The lighting, the emotion of the models, the interactions between the couples – it all has to work in harmony – but it is the set that creates the mood and creates another dimension of emotion.”
