Russian fashion photographer Andrew Akimov recently shot a slew of photographs that combine elements of high fashion with more street-savvy gothic themes. In one photograph, the model is draped in a black, veil-like dress. The outfit shows quite a bit of skin, but its elegant shape along with the dispondant expression of its wearer keep the look composed and classy.

When it comes to photography, there are more elements than just clothing to consider. In the first frame of the series, Andrew Akimov sharply contrasts the model's jet black outfit against a blue background for a striking effect. In the second photograph, he employs an ambrotype color scheme which almost blends into the model's flowing, gray dress.

The model deserves credit too, as her expressions and poses perfectly match the outfits she wears.
