I recently shared with you all, an image from Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov. It’s a captivating, fascinating image from a series of his called Weird Beauty, that I couldn’t not share with you.
He brilliantly used the female face as a canvas for different graphics that you wouldn’t normally put on your face. The black and white make-up by russian make-up artist Valeryia Kutsan creates mesmerizing effects on the female faces, some are almost 3D-ish. (Check out the backstage pics here.)
I am blown away by these photographs. Underneath the black and white make-up there are beautiful faces. These are beautiful women. Don’t know if this makes sense to you but it does for me: beauty can be weirdly beautiful.
There are 15 fantastic images in this series. Here are my 8 favorite. I couldn’t just pick one. So without further a do, submerge yourself in this Oasis.
