Sometimes you stumble across a photographer who knocks you square out with their talent. Alexander Gronsky is one of these photographers.
Born in 1980 in Tallinn, Estonia and based in Riga, Latvia, this photographer captures often desolate scenes but gives them a kind of playfullness because of the people and his framing. It's like a photographic post industrial move from Seurat's impressionist depictions of La Grande Jatte.
Caught in a kind of middle ground, an urban purgatory between rural and industrial, the past and the future. These pictures leave you in limbo, feeling both warm and cold but wanting to look deeper none the less.
