Faces of Models Transformed Into 2D Images by Alexander Khokhlov

“2D Or Not 2D” photo project is the second collaboration between Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan, with the assistance of Veronica Ershova in retouching and post-production of the images. They have created a series of portraits that play with the natural lines of their models’ faces and twist them into strange new forms.

Inspired by 2D posters, the aim of the project was to transform models’ faces into 2D images. Kutsan’s makeup design flattens the faces of the models, while the angles chosen by Khokhlov and enhanced by Ershova contribute to the overall illusion of 2D representation.

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.”

The visual impressions of this large-sized color photographs of the photo project The Artificial Face by Thomas Rusch have an attracting and disturbing effect to the viewers. The faces of his models are masked almost beyond recognition with milky clothes and surgical gauze soaked in red. Only the eye sockets and the mouth mark human identity. In this series, Rusch melted together the difference between skin and mask, the human body and artificial texture. Moreover, he achieved this photos even without digital modification.

Rusch’s masks created with make up and transparent materials isolated the face’s features. The face, instead of simply being a part of the body, reveals itself as a cultural concept. Like in real life, his masks reveal by covering and they mask by revealing themselves.
