I have to give props to Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov for these amazing portraits. While kudos goes out to him, major high fives should go out to his makeup artist for a truly amazing job! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did (via fStoppers)

" Alexander Khokhlov est un photographe russe qui réalise surtout des portraits. Il travaille énormément sur le maquillage et les accessoires. Nous vous proposons d’ailleurs dans cet article une série d’oeuvre magnifiques basées sur le contraste entre le noir et le blanc. Bravo au photographe mais aussi au responsable du maquillage donc. "
2D or not 2D is the second collaboration between photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. This time around, the team was increased to include Veronica Ershova who led the process of retouching and post-production. The authors were inspired by two-dimensional posters and the goal was to turn the models faces into two dimensional-like images. Valeriya used an array of painting styles, from sketch and graphic arts to watercolour and oil-painting.
