Abandoned is one word that comes to mind when looking at this Garmonique photography. The scenes depicted in the Russian photographer's most recent series depict sparse, dark scenes. In one picture, a dilapidated building set against a uniformly gray sky towers ominously above the viewer. In another, oil streams out from a car's wheel along ghostly white concrete as though an arctic river snaking through the tundra.
Yet, Garmonique's photography, despite its sparseness, refrains from austerity. This is achieved in a few ways. The colors and shades softly compliment one another -- light gray on dark gray, for instance. The outlines of objects are muted so as to produce a smokey, hazy effect. These scenes may be desolate and abandoned, but they retain an elusive beauty.
