I love it when people from different art-disciplines come together to collaborate. The outcome can be so unique, like in this ‘2D or not 2D’ project. It’s a photo-series done by photographer Alexander Khokhlov, make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan and Veronica Ershova who did the digital retouching and post-production. Much more work here.
The authors were inspired by two-dimensional posters. Key-idea of the project was, to turn the 3D models faces into 2D images. It made me think of how photo’s used to be hand-colored for a while in the twenties-sixties. Back then, those colors would bring depth to an image. In this project it’s the other way around: colors bring flatness. Amazing! Face painting and 3D photography seen in a whole new perspective!
