In sombre black and white, Dmytro Avramenko creates a photo series that conjures a spellbinding narrative. Set on the decks of a boat, the restlessness of the ocean is contrasted to the apparent calm and unruffled countenance of the model. Emotion is palpable: a bizarre mix of sadness and passion, and at times the viewer feels to be more of a voyeur than an acknowledged guest. The intense contrast used across the series highlights and perpetuates this seesaw of experience, mimicking the sway of a boat at sea.
