Talented Russian photographer Aleksey Kovalev is known for shooting stunning portraits. His photographs are able to capture the subjects involved and their emotions during the time the image was taken.

The latest photography work by Aleksey Kovalev is called 'Zusammen,' which translates to mean "together." The captivating shoot features a series of couples, embracing with solemn expressions in front of the lens.

Aleksey Kovalev's subjects are calm, solemn and appear to be in the moment. In 'Zusammen,' it seems that Kovalev is trying to piece the idea that not all love is grand and about smiling and frolicking through daisy fields, and that there are often times of sorrow when two people truly need to be there for one another.
