Being a photographer isn’t always about shooting sunrises and butterflies. Some artists shoot the darkness of both nature and humanity.

Gerzhedovich achieves his darkened shades using a variety of techniques both by hand and on the computer that he says combine to form something “between surrealism and fantasy.”
