Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov and makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan have created a bewitching series of portraits that play with the natural lines of their models’ faces and twist them into strange new forms: 2D Or Not 2D. The key-idea of the project was to turn the models faces into the 2D images.
According to Khokhlov – “Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.”
“We tried to make ‘alive posters,’” Alexander Khokhlov tells Yahoo Shine. “It’s challenging to make people look like a poster while at the same time not very digitized.”
