These somber editorials showcase an alternative side to fashionable and artistic photoshoots. Although teams of photographers and creative directors often do prefer sunny scenes featuring smiling models and beach backdrops, these productions have taken a darker route, opting for sorrowful themes.

Mysteriously expressive portraits and mirrored melancholic captures have come to characterize the pages of some of the world's largest publications. Pictures of crying women and children strike a chord in the hearts of viewers, and while some take up issue with these images, others have supported their raw qualities.

These ventures often address the issues of death, depression and even substance abuse, merging alluring displays of fine art with novel reflections. In effect, these reflections bring new visions and takes to the table.
