The 'Occult' photo series by Estonian-based photographer Maxim Mjodov features a tall brunette model clad in a long fur overcoat. This dramatic ensemble offsets the backdrop's mystical forest, an unknown region filled with smoke, leaves and towering tree branches. The dark clouds captured by Mjodov offer a wondrous feel to the collection that is more ethereal than anything else.

Mjodov is interested in documentaries, landscapes, barren spaces and the sense of loneliness rampant in cities. The artist claims to be connected to such subjects, and has done an incredible job of providing his take on them. The Occult collection provides another nail in the proverbial Mjodov coffin, marked by dream-like states, local happenings and detailed portraits. His portfolio has been shaken up this time however, providing an intense look into this whimsical natural setting.
