If the word ‘melancholy’ does not appear in this post, I am not doing my job. Sure the photographs of Garmonique are a little on the gloomy side, but that doesn’t stop them from being absolutely gorgeous. The color and composition of each is tremendous. (Can color/composition be described as tremendous? Probably not, but these shots are great enough that I willing to bend any vocabulary rules you might subscribe to.) He captures a very specific mood. I feel lost and lonely — but in a good way. Mysterious, dark and yes, melancholic indeed. That one image of the ocean reminds me a lot of the Hiroshi Sugimoto shot used for U2’s last album cover.

A bunch more on his Behance.

I can almost hear the thousands of electronic musicians simultaneously emailing him asking for album covers…

Really love these pics, especially the first one. It actually really reminds me of Lights Out Asia’s most recent album cover (Tanks and Recognizers). Here’s a link to the cover art…see any similarities? Think I like this photographer’s pic better though. Btw, this album is amazing, and their previous one (Garmonia) is amazing too…Jakub should def check it out…should be right up his alley.
