French couple Karina Rikun and Tom Claisse work together as the creative director and photographer of jewellery photography firm Alma Karina Agency. Based in Paris and working abroad, they aim to create darkly sophisticated images. Their passion for the art of high jewellery led them to specialise in shooting jewels for editorial and advertising projects. The duo love to reveal the precious details in jewellery and to highlight the craftsmanship of skilled artisans. This month, Karina and Tom style and shoot our fairy-tale-themed high jewellery feature (p.162).
