Alexander Zaxarov
Sep 6, 2019

Less than One by Alexander Gronsky is about regions in Russia’s vast hinterland where the average population density is less than one per square kilometre.

The series looks at the evidence of human habitation in this oppressive, monotone Russian landscape. Gronsky considers himself primarily a landscape photographer, although he manages to breathe new life into the genre in surprising ways. In his photos of the immense Russian landscape, Gronsky investigates the impact of the surroundings on the emotions and behaviour of the individual. He comments that looking at his photography should evoke emotions similar to that of “thoughtless staring with a vague sense of unease at an undefined point somewhere in space”.
