Sober, minimalistic photography by Garmonique

garmonique-intro
I once read a quote on photography that I remembered ever since:

It’s not the camera that makes a good picture, it’s the photographer.

People with the most expensive and luxurious camera equipment can make dull, standard photos, whilst people with old, broken or mobile phone cameras making the most amazing shots. If you have the eye, you don’t need the equipment.

Garmonique is a photographer from Russia who demonstrates what you can accomplish if you have a great eye for photography. Architecture, nature and the weather are recurring themes in Garmonique’s work, yet it’s not the typical pictures you might expect from that description. By playing with geometry, isolating objects and looking at scenery from a different angle Garmonique creates the most wonderful shots. I love the desolation in his work: the sober colour palette and minimalistic compositions transfer you to an abandoned, Silent-Hill-esque world that is both hauntingly gorgeous and a bit creepy. Enjoy!
