In this Almaphotos 'Desolata' series, the viewer is exposed to elegantly flowing black veils, sharp contrasting shades and undulating throngs of mourners. The photographs are dark and elegant. This harmony of graceful aesthetics overlaid upon moody undertones is something that the Milan, Italy-based photography collaboration is adept at. Its portfolio is overflowing with photographs in the same vein as Desolata. Still, this series in particular is a telling example of the quality of their work.
One of the most striking features of the series is simply the number of people involved. When capturing a single moment as participated in by many people, there is always the risk of incoherence and messiness. Yet, Almaphotos conveys an effortless grace.
